This activity report consists of the report from an international workshop organized by the World Bank, the UK’s Department for International Development, the Institute of Development Studies, and the UN Economic Commission for Africa on “Making Social Protection Work for Pro-poor Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation” in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 14-17 March 2011. The workshop brought together policy makers, practitioners and researchers from the fields of social protection, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and had two core objectives: to understand better how social protection can be used to strengthen the poor’s resilience to climate and natural disaster risk in developing countries; to create a forum for cross-regional learning about good practice for realizing the potential synergies between social protection, disaster risk reduction, and climate change adaptation.
