Report
from Oxford Policy Management
Published on 08 Jan 2018

This Synthesis Report consolidates the evidence and lessons learned from the DFID-funded Shock-Responsive Social Protection Systems research programme, drawing on six country case studies and an international literature review (among other outputs). It highlights the key ways in which social protection systems may contribute to mitigate the effect of, or respond to, large-scale shocks, and the opportunities and challenges therein; presents the features of programme design and implementation that determine the efficiency and effectiveness of the response; and summarises lessons on achieving a successful collaboration between the humanitarian, DRM and social protection systems. The individual case study reports are available separately here.
