Social protection encompasses safety net programs such as conditional cash transfers, insurance programs such as microinsurance or weather securities, and social sector programs such as free primary education. In addition to creating a fairer society, social protection programs can also be key in promoting economic growth through reducing risk and encouraging investment and innovation.

IFPRI’s social protection work seeks to reduce the vulnerability of poor households to market- and environmentally-driven shocks through the appropriate design of institutions, policies, and technological innovations.
