This brief considers some of the potential impacts and implications of the coronavirus pandemic on building the resilience of households to climate-related shocks and stresses in East Africa.

Recent years have seen an increasing focus on the role of social protection in building the resilience of households to climate-related shocks and stresses.

Drawing lessons from WFP programming in a number of countries, the brief lists out three main ways of responding to immediate threats while not losing focus on longer-term agendas and programming in support of resilience building in the face of climate shocks.
