Brief: Towards shock-responsive social protection: lessons from the COVID-19 response in Ethiopia

COVID-19 and national and international measures to curb its spread, may have pushed 15 million more people below the poverty line in Ethiopia.

Recommendations in this policy brief focus on improving Disaster Risk Financing, the need to operationalize the management information systems of the flagship social safety net programmes and the consolidation of existing safety net programmes in to a single national programme in the long-term.
