Providing Humanitarian Assistance in Sahel Emergencies (PHASE)

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-204439 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £248,499,996

To provide humanitarian assistance to vulnerable people in the Sahel and help them to cope with future disasters. This will be linked to the seasonal calendar and work alongside longer-term resilience programmes to reduce the long term demand for humanitarian assistance in the Sahel, and will be delivered through NGO and multilateral partners.

Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-202921 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £140,149,986

To help up to 10 million people, especially women and children, in developing countries cope with extreme climate and weather events such as droughts, cyclones and floods (climate extremes). This will be achieved by doing three things. By making grants to civil society organisations to scale up proven technologies and practices in the Sahel, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia that help people withstand, and more quickly recover, from climate extremes. By identifying the best ways of doing this, and share this knowledge globally to increase the programme’s overall impact. By supporting national governments to strengthen their policies and actions to respond to climate extremes. These will all contribute to the Millennium Development Goals on the eradication poverty and hunger, and environmental sustainability, and also respond to the Humanitarian and Emergency Response Review recommendation that DFID should integrate the threat from climate change into a Disaster Risk Reduction.

Sahel Humanitarian Emergency Response Programme (SHERP)

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300719 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £110,000,000

To provide life-saving support to vulnerable people affected by multiple crises in the Sahel. While strengthening the evidence base on effectiveness of different forms of assistance in meeting nutrition and food security outcomes in the event of shocks and stresses.

UK Aid Match II Fund

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-205210 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £57,104,261

To support the achievement of the Global Goals through funding UK-based civil society organisations to deliver projects that assist in ending extreme poverty and building a better world by 2030. The programme will also provide opportunities for the UK public to engage in international development issues and have a say in how a portion of the aid budget is spent.

Building Resilience in the Sahel through Adaptive Social Protection

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-204044 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £49,999,999

Build the evidence and justification for adaptive social protection in the Sahel by establishing national level systems that will build the resilience of vulnerable populations and can be scaled in a time of crisis.

To increase trade, growth and poverty reduction through greater regional integration and trade competitiveness.

WISER - Weather and climate Information and SERvices for Africa

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-204624 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £35,167,126

WISER will help at least 24 million people across Africa (focusing initially on East Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi) to be more resilient to natural disasters and climate change by 2030 by improving early warning systems (giving more time to prepare for heavy rains for example) as well as helping them make better decisions by knowing what the weather and climate is likely to be (enabling them to make better crop choices or alter planting times in farming, for example). We estimate that this will save over £190 million in terms of avoided damage to health, homes, livelihoods and infrastructure between now and 2030. The WISER programme will initially benefit the East African fishing and farming communities, as well as a wide range of African people, including young, old, men and boys and women and girls.

Employment and Skills for Eastern Africa: E4D/SOGA

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-204639 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £22,826,266

To provide skill training, matching and supplier development services to help East African women, men and young people exploit employment and economic opportunities in natural resource-based industries and adjacent sectors. The programme designs and funds interventions together with the private sector to ensure its services are demand-driven. If successful, the programme will help countries benefit more economically from investments in resource-based industries and other sectors, in terms of East Africans having access to jobs created rather than expats and local firms benefitting from increased procurement opportunities rather than international contractors.

Strengthening Research Institutions in Africa

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300781 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £20,000,000

SRIA will strengthen the research systems in DFID partner countries so that both local and donor research investment achieves economic and social impact. It will do this by strengthening the institutions that regulate and shape research in country to ensure that research investment is aligned with national development priorities. It will invest in the building blocks of research, for example, access to global research, recruitment and retention of researchers and more equitable research partnerships between northern and southern researchers. Whilst also driving increased coherence of UK ODA research spend to ensure it has a greater impact.

SHEAR - Science for Humanitarian Emergencies and Resilience

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-1-201884 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £17,869,993

SHEAR will support world-leading research and innovations in flood and drought risk monitoring and warning systems in Sub-Saharan Africa and landslip prone regions of South Asia. To enable greater and more effective investment in disaster resilience and earlier action to respond to imminent natural hazards by providing decision makers with enhanced risk mapping and analyses and more reliable warning systems
