Adaptive social protection in Mozambique: Improvements in emergency response

Author: International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth , World Food Programme (WFP) Mozambique

Abstract:Mozambique is the third African country most exposed to climate events. In this scenario, the role of social protection is extremely relevant, since households covered by social protection systems have greater capacity and resilience to deal with extreme events, including, for example, faster recovery of productive assets, maintenance of basic consumption levels during crises and continuous investment in human capital after a shock event.
