The objective of this study is to recommend how BISP can become more systematically involved in supporting a shock response in Pakistan. Our focus is on operational delivery of a response by one particular programme, namely BISP. This complements previous work on shock-responsive social protection in Pakistan, which gives a national overview over a number of programmes and recommends different types of shock responses without going into operational details.
