Practitioner Note 4: Inclusive social protection for forcibly displaced populations
Research Report 73
This Practitioner Note is part of a four-part series providing MENA governments and practitioners in the fields of both social protection and disaster risk management (DRM) with general guidelines for future shock response informed by lessons learned from the COVID pandemic. The first three notes of the series include recommendations on inclusive design and implementation related to the following topics: (i) targeting, identification and registration mechanisms; (ii) transfer values and payment modalities; and (iii) communication, case management and grievance redress mechanisms. Given the salience of the issue of forcibly displaced populations in MENA, note IV addresses the inclusion of migrants in identification, payments, communication and grievance redress mechanisms specifically.
This Practitioners’ Note is the fourth in a four-part series providing governments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and practitioners in the fields of social protection and disaster risk management (DRM) with general guidelines for future shock response informed by lessons learned from the COVID pandemic. It focuses in particular on inclusive shock-responsive social protection, which recognises that different groups of vulnerable people are impacted differently by shocks, taking into account their heterogeneous needs in the design and implementation of the response.
