In simple words, social protection is a subset of public actions that help address risk, vulnerability and chronic poverty. While social protection has proven to improve livelihoods, social transfers and social services are a long-term investment. Social studies prove that they carry lifetime benefits and high individual and social returns. Social protection aims at ensuring groups and individuals to live a fulfilling life. This requires governments to facilitate the process considering the vulnerabilities of particular groups or individuals.

For organizations to provide relief and development services, it is very important to maintain regular monitoring and evaluation. This is particularly important for organizational learning and organizational policy feed. Often, learning through M&E also help contributing to major development programs improvement.
