Linking social protection and humanitarian assistance: Adjusting social protection delivery to support displaced populations. A toolkit

This toolkit offers guidance to government and non-governmental actors providing (or planning to provide) social protection to displaced populations, as well as to those considering linking humanitarian assistance with social protection programmes.

Drawing on examples from the three case studies (Cameroon, Colombia and Greece), this toolkit partners with that focusing on policy and programme design (Hagen-Zanker et al., 2022a) to recommend adjustments for displaced populations at each phase of the social protection delivery chain (Lindert et al., 2020), as illustrated in Figure 1 – namely:

  • outreach and communication
  • intake, registration and assessment
  • determination and notification of eligibility and support package
  • provision of benefits and services
  • accountability, management and monitoring.
