The importance of social protection for climate change mitigation in LMICS

Success stories and opportunities for the future

We need climate change mitigation to secure our future. Although in the long-term we will all benefit from it, in the short-term it can bring additional costs, which might be especially challenging for poorer parts of the population. Social protection compensates these adverse social impacts and enables socially just climate change mitigation measures. It can also actively incentivise climate-friendly behaviour.
