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

Adaptive social protection is an integrated approach that can help address the challenges of adaptation, resilience building, and disaster and climate risk management for the poor and vulnerable. The objective of the Sahel Adaptive Social Protection Program (ASPP) is to increase access to effective adaptive social protection systems for poor and vulnerable populations in six countries in the Sahel. The Sahel ASPP addresses key constraints and vulnerabilities in a region where the impacts of natural disasters and climate change are increasing in frequency and severity. During its second year of implementation FY16, which is covered by this progress report, the program advanced in the implementation of both country-level and regional programmatic activities, and launched the Innovation Window. Country-specific research and knowledge activities were initiated and a number of products completed, as summarized in this report.
