Protecting children from poverty, disaster and climate risk

Source(s):  United Nation Children's Fund - East Asia and Pacific Regional Office (UNICEF EAPRO)

This publication links social protection with disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. It develops an integrated understanding of vulnerability and identifies four steps for governments and development partners to strengthen the linkages between the technical areas. These steps include: (i)) identify households that are most at risk of disaster and climate change impacts; (ii)) assess the sensitivity of current social protection programmes to disaster and climate risks; (iii)) adopt existing and develop new social protection programmes and systems that integrate disaster and climate risks; and (iv) improve the coordination of institutions, strategies and programmes.
