Harnessing Gender and Social Equality for Resilience in Agrifood Systems (HER+)Gender-Responsive Social Protection Harnessing Gender and Social Equality for Resilience in Agrifood Systems (HER+)Gender-Responsive Social Protection Background Harnessing Gender and Social Equality for Resilience in Agrifood Systems (HER+) is a One CGIAR initiative that aims to use impactful gender research to address gender inequality by applying gender-transformative approaches to address harmful norms, bundling innovations for womens empowerment, leveraging social protection to increase womens access to and control over resources, and promoting inclusive governance and policies for increased resilience. This SOW is under Work Package 3 (WP3) on gender-responsive social protection for climate resilience and equality. Social protection systemsincluding national programs targeting cash and food transfers to the poor, often alongside complementary programsreach billions of resource-poor women globally. These programs have great potential to support women in mitigating effects of CC, along with addressing root causes of vulnerabilityincluding limited resources, livelihoods and empowerment. Yet social protection is rarely sufficiently gender-responsive or designed with a climate lens. WP3 works alongside stakeholders to test how social protection and complementary programs can support women in mitigating and adapting to effects of climate change and building resilience, to reduce gender inequality in food security, nutrition, livelihoods and empowerment. Research under this work package will address the questions: 1. What social protection strategies and complementary programs help women mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change? 2. What social protection strategies and complementary programsincluding gender-transformative approachesaddress root causes of womens vulnerability to shocks, and support women as agents of change in responding to them? Under the first research question, three outputs are envisioned 1) Strategic review findings, summarizing what is currently known about how social protection affects womens well-being during climate shocks/stressors, with implications for future programming and research; 2) New research f
