18 October, 1 - 2.30 PM UK time (GMT+1) / Social protection is increasingly recognised as an important mechanism for responding to shocks, including climate-related ones. Understanding how delivery and financing mechanisms can be best designed and implemented to allow effective disaster response is crucial. However, not only do social protection systems need to be shock responsive, they should also reduce the vulnerability of poor people in the long-term by building their capacity to absorb climate shocks and adapt to risks. So - what is the role of social protection in building resilience? And what does it look like? Come and join our experts from ODI and the Red Cross Climate Centre to discuss this question. We will share findings from recent BRACED research in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia.

We welcome comments that advance the story through relevant opinion, anecdotes, links and data.
