SPACE What are future financing options for shock responsive social protection? (Summary Brief)

31 May 2021 — By Daniel Longhurst, Sophie Evans, Dayna Connolly, Felix Lung, Anna McCord, Stephanie Allan, and Michele Plichta

This paper, and the longer Technical Primer that accompanies it, are designed to inform discussions around financing shock-responsive social protection (SRSP). It starts by clarifying terms and providing a framing to guide approaches to SRSP financing. It then provides a high-level overview of current and potential sectoral financing sources for SRSP, as well as specific financing instruments, their applicability and limitations for SRSP, and how they can be better institutionalised. It ends with a series of reflections for a broad policy and programme audience. Along the way, the Technical Primer signposts the reader to useful resources through footnotes, a recommended reading list, bibliography, and a glossary.
