Description: "The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) is one of India’s flagship social protection programmes. This paper is part of a series of briefings that analyse how the scheme builds the resilience of rural households to different climate shocks. The goal of the series is to identify options for Indian policymakers to integrate climate risk management into MGNREGS. It will also provide evidence for global policymakers on how to mainstream climate risk management into social protection programmes, or converge and layer social protection and climate risk management instruments to address poverty in the context of climate change."
