How disaster risk finance can link with social protection: maximising the effectiveness of shock response

This brief provides some initial guidance for those wanting to deepen their understanding of SRSP from a financing perspective; it is suitable for those involved in the design or funding of DRF instruments and approaches, who want to explore options of how to increase its impact and cost-effectiveness, for example through improved contingency planning. Given spiralling needs and the rising frequency and severity of climate disasters, it is imperative to make sure that every dollar of DRF support has the maximum possible impact on the lives of vulnerable people. SRSP offers some potential to help realise that aim.
