Highlights

Social protection is a key policy tool in such situations and UNICEF often provides technical and financial support to make sure that this is accessible in a timely and adequate fashion. Shock responsive social protection (SRSP) is intended to ensure the immediate wellbeing and the access to basic services of children, adolescents, and their families, while at the same time, aims to reinvigorate countries’ ongoing efforts to strengthen their social protection systems in the aftermath and with a medium-term horizon.

This report brings together a series of case studies that aim to illustrate how UNICEF supports the implementation of SRSP in Latin America and the Caribbean.
