Sahel adaptive social protection program : addressing the challenges of climate change and disaster risk for the poor and vulnerable (English)

The Adaptive Social Protection Program (ASPP) aims to support the design and implementation of adaptive social protection programs and systems in the Sahel. Since its launch, the ASPP has made significant progress toward enabling access for poor and vulnerable people in the Sahel to adaptive and shock-responsive social protection. The advances made in the implementation of the ASPP are reflected in the progress that has been made toward the targets set out in the program’s results framework, with most indicators either having been met or on track to being met. The World Bank is currently exploring options to extend the ASPP to enable the Sahelian countries to solidify the gains that have been made in their national social protection systems and to extend these gains in ways that further enable poor and vulnerable households to build their resilience. This report summarizes progress made during fiscal year (FY) 2017 (July 1, 2016, to June 30, 2017) and sets out the FY18 plan for the ASPP.
