Policy coherence between social protection and climate action: Initial findings from global studies and projects

In this brief, we seek to establish the shared objectives of social protection and climate action and explore how including social protection in climate documents and acknowledging climate risks in social protection documents at the national level can provide a significant boost to the recognition of social protection as a relevant climate risk management tool. The brief is intended for policy-makers as well as practitioners, informing policy in these sectors, and is expected to foster a synergistic approach to address climate challenges and social vulnerabilities.
