Options for Linking Forecast-based Action and Social Safety Net Programmes in Bangladesh

This option paper presents the findings of a rapid assessment of five government Social Safety Net Programmes (SSNPs) identified to accommodate a forecast-based action approach to shock response in Bangladesh through their operational platforms and resources. Basen on the enabling factors and barriers to such programmatic integration, the document proposes a staged approach to the institutionalization of forecast-based actions as part of the country's disaster risk management (DRM) and social protection strategies and draws some concrete recommendations for sector practitioners, including SUFAL II consortium. The option paper is the second step of a broader research piece incorporating a local and global review of FbA experiences, and learning products based on a pilot planned to take place during the 2023 Monsoon season.
