Tracking Global Social Protection Responses to Inflation: Living paper v. 4

This note provides an update of social protection responses to the food, fuel, fertilizer, and other price shocks sparked or accelerated by the Ukraine war. The vast majority of measures were introduced in early 2022 (February-April), although some specific interventions to mitigate prices were included in late 2021. This initiative complements other two ongoing thematic trackers of country-level action on how social protection is being leveraged in crisis situations – one on Covid19 responses (16 versions) and another one focused on displacement as a result of the Ukraine war (3 versions). As for other trackers, the issuance of subsequent versions would hinge on the level of responses observed at country level.
