This working paper focuses on community-level practices and perceptions of social protection in the Sahel, exploring both informal mechanisms of risk management and response, as well as the social dynamics arising out of the intersection of formal and informal systems. The aim is to contribute to reflection as to how community-sensitive ‘shock-responsive’ social protection can build on, complement and reinforce local mechanisms in a manner that integrates shock responsiveness within a broader social protection continuum.
