Building resilience to climate change:MGNREGS and cyclones in Andhra Pradesh

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 provides analysis on how MGNREGS builds the resilience of rural households to different climate shocks. The goal of this series is to identify options for Indian policymakers to integrate climate risk management into MGNREGS. These findings can 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.
