Realising the Potential of Adaptive Social Protection

Published on 11 October 2012

The concept of Adaptive Social Protection (ASP) – an approach that promotes greater integration between Social Protection, Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction to make a meaningful contribution towards sustainable development – is well understood.

Are there enough synergies between the three communities of practice to make ASP work? Or are there too many challenges to overcome? Analysis of new survey data has revealed differences and similarities between the three communities and has generated helpful conclusions and policy recommendations that will inform the future of ASP.
