The objective is to strengthen government capacity and the functioning of the
Peruvian social protection system to rapidly respond to the needs of the poor
and those emerging vulnerable groups due to natural disasters. The BETF includes two interrelated components.

The first component provides technical support
to the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (MIDIS) to modify its
current regulatory framework to make the noncontributory social protection
system more adaptive to respond to disasters.
The second provides technical assistance to analyze the modification of
specific social protection programs so they can include operational adaptations
to expand benefits in the case of a disaster or national emergency.
