Author: Urbe Secades and Ana Solorzano, WFP anticipatory action and social protection experts
Considering the unprecedented trend of rising humanitarian needs and the global food crisis in which climate shocks play a major role, WFP is integrating anticipatory action and social protection. When anticipatory action is layered with social protection, it can help address the climate risks affecting the most vulnerable populations in a timely, sustainable, and cost-effective manner. The objective of this document is to provide an overview of ways to integrate anticipatory action and social protection, WFP’s added value in this agenda and key steps for a successful integration.
