Towards Adaptive Social Protection Systems in Latin America and the Caribbean : A Synthesis Note on Using Social Protection to Mitigate and Respond to Disaster Risk

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This synthesis note is the first in a series of guidance notes which aim to serve as a consultation tool in the design of Adaptive Social Protection (ASP) Systems in Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries to better address disasters and climate risks. While these notes focus on disasters caused by natural hazards, the framework and lessons are also applicable to other types of emergencies and shocks, including economic shocks, health pandemics, and shocks caused by conflict. The note provides a stocktaking of the specific disaster risks faced by LAC countries provides an overview of SP systems and performance in LAC countries, establishes a general framework to assess ASP capacity in LAC, and provides guidance on better using SP systems in LAC to support Disaster Risk Management (DRM) pillars.
