American Journal of Rural Development
Comprehensive social protection that aims to prevent impoverishment - and protect, promote and transform livelihoods and social relations - provides significant opportunities to help people adapt to disaster risk reduction.
Social protection policies and programmes need to consider disaster risk reduction in order to effectively address the multiple risk and vulnerabilities faced by the poor and excluded.
Developing social protection approaches for disaster risk reduction adaptation requires a rigorous evidence base and an improved understanding of social impacts and policy and implementation processes.
