Knowledge Note

The adverse impacts of natural disasters and climate change constitute a major risk to the poor and near-poor. Poor men and women face disproportionately higher risks from these events because of their limited ability to cope with shocks. Therefore, they require more support from social protection programs in order to protect their livelihoods. The increasing frequency and intensity of natural disasters make it imperative that governments be prepared to respond.
