A six-step guide to supporting shock-responsive social protection in response to COVID-19

22 April 2020 — By Save the Children International

This note[1] sets out six steps to guide our decisions on whether and how we may be able to provide an effective and timely response to the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 by building on existing government social protection programmes (i.e. shock responsive social protection). It is aimed primarily at staff in country offices that are already engaged with governments on social protection and/ or emergency cash and voucher programming.

[1] This brief guidance note is informed by two larger guidance documents on shock responsive social protection: Working with Cash based Safety Nets in Humanitarian Contexts (2016) ; (Shock Responsive Social Protection Systems Toolkit (2018).
