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 MGNREGS 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 global policymakers with evidence on how to mainstream climate risk management into social protection programmes, or combine and layer social protection instruments with climate risk management instruments to address poverty in the context of climate change."
