How can social protection best be achieved in situations of fragility? This paper argues that while the objectives for social protection in fragile states are essentially the same as in development contexts, social protection instruments, financing and delivery need to be adapted. In order to scale up social protection in fragile settings, it is important to use a wider range of social protection instruments; to provide longer-term, more harmonised and predictable funding; and to work with a broader range of actors.
