Access to Benefits and Claims after Disaster

IDEALS believes in every person’s right to social protection, regardless of class, status, ethnicity and nature of work. In its work, IDEALS is cognizant that the access to social protection and safety net measures needs to correspond with the end goal of reducing the economic and social vulnerabilities of marginalized communities.

In the wake of disasters such as the unprecedented Yolanda, individual, economic, environmental, and social risks are magnified at the community level and social protection systems play an important role in the relief, recovery and, in the long-term, achieving inclusive rights-based development.
