This literature review summarises the latest thinking from around the world on the connections between social protection, humanitarian and disaster risk management systems. It is rich in country-specific examples of how a wide range of social protection interventions (including cash transfers, public works programmes, subsidies and formal social security) have responded flexibly to crises. It also considers the challenges posed by the specific financial and political economy contexts.
The review is an output from the Shock Responsive Social Protection Systems Research Project. The review is available in English and French.
