Climate change loss and damage is leading to increasingly devastating impacts on poor and vulnerable people. This paper explains how best to equip social protection programmes to help communities better absorb the effects of climate risks, adapt to climate impacts and transform their capacities to address growing climate stresses.

It provides recommendations on (i) what strategies can help create effective social protection programming that delivers anticipatory climate resilience outcomes; (ii) what options can be tapped to finance anticipatory risk-responsive social protection programmes, and (iii) how can countries strengthen their delivery approaches for targeted anticipatory responses.
