Overcoming Barriers to Mainstream and Operationalise Adaptive Social Protection in Local Regions with Multiple Risk Contexts

To realise ASP, it is necessary to build some basic level of knowledge and understanding about the ASP concept among key relevant stakeholders. With an increasing number of interlinked shocks and vulnerabilities due to disasters, climate change risks, and socioeconomic shocks, it is urgent to have ASP in regions with multiple covariate risks. To overcome challenges in implementing the four pillars of ASP, concerted efforts to identify linkages and complementarities among fragmented policies and programs are required. This Policy Brief aims to strengthen community resilience against climate change impacts through the Adaptive Social Protection (ASP) concept. This Policy Brief is expected to be used as a discussion on how to overcome barriers in mainstreaming and operationalising ASP in the local region.
