Adaptive social protection systems combine policies and techniques from social protection, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction (DDR). With this approach, social protection programs become more flexible, can quickly be extended to populations affected by shocks and reinforce households’ resilience. Yet adaptive social protection is not systematically included in development strategies, be it in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), social protection or DDR strategies.  This session will bring together experts from these different fields to discuss how adaptive social protection can be put at the forefront of the policy agenda to help households and communities anticipate, absorb, and recover from climate shocks.
