To deliver an effective response to the basic needs of vulnerable people impacted by the crisis in the North East of Nigeria. The programme will deliver humanitarian assistance in nutrition and food security; protection and Education in Emergencies; multi-sector support including health, water, shelter and livelihoods interventions; as well as enabling a more efficient response to the crisis, including strengthened government planning, budgeting and coordination; and risk management.
The majority of the funding in this Business Case will provide lifesaving assistance in response to urgent humanitarian needs, while at the same time continuing to reform the international humanitarian response. Over five years the programme will aim to: Support over 620,000 people with food assistance, cash and voucher transfers; Provide up to 220,000 children under the age of 5 with nutrition related interventions; Provide over 1.1m people with greater access to clean drinking water and 900,000 with health care; Provide increased protection for over 195,000 children through improved access to education; Support over 12,000 trauma victims with medical, psycho-social or economic assistance; Provide safe humanitarian access through the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service. The programme will be delivered through both bilateral and multilateral partners, including the DRC Humanitarian Fund, ICRC, UN agencies, INGOs and private contractors. Interventions will focus on n
UK Aid Match II - 2016-2020 is the next phase of DFID’s UK Aid Match scheme and has a budget of up to £157 million. UK Aid Match is DFID’s fund to increase UK public engagement in international development, while simultaneously reducing poverty and achieving the Global Goals in priority countries through funded civil society organisations. DFID aims to provide opportunities for the UK public to have a say in how UK aid is spent by offering to match every £1 donated by the public to a UK Aid Match charity appeal. CSOs use the match funding raised in the appeals to implement projects that improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. In the first phase of the UK Aid Match 2013 - 2016, a total of 62 grants were awarded to CSOs, working in 22 countries, and 3.6 million public donations were matched. Under the next phase of the scheme, UK Aid Match II, DFID would like to see an increase in the number and diversity of CSOs accessing UK Aid Match funding, a more diversified subsection of the public being reached by the appeals and engaged in international development, and more innovative or non-challenge fund methods being explored. The next phase of the scheme will have broader country eligibility criteria, which will include countries in the bottom 50 of the Human Development Index and countries that DFID considers to be highly or moderately fragile. In January 2018, DFID selected a MannionDaniels’ led consortium as Fund Manager for the next phase of UK Aid Match. The consortium partners are Education Development Trust, Oxford Policy Management, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and The Social Change Agency.
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.
Establish partnerships with local & central government, communities and businesses to support the (i) districts effected by the Earthquake to “build back better” including leading to more resilient (including climate resilient) infrastructure and institutions; (ii) the most vulnerable recover their livelihoods and assets; and (iii) the Government of Nepal to plan for and manage the response to the earthquake.
To improve nutrition by providing treatment of malnutrition, including community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM), vitamin A supplementation and deworming, and promotion of improved infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices. This will benefit 6.2 million children under five across five states (Kebbi, Katsina, Jigawa, Zamfara, Yobe) in northern Nigeria. This will reduce the prevalence of stunting, wasting and underweight by at least 4% over the 6 year period. This will contribute towards our MDGs targets by achieving a 43% reduction in childhood mortality (220/1000 live births to 125/1000 live births) in Nigeria.
This is business case 2/3 which implements the DFID Humanitarian Innovation and Evidence Strategy. This programme will develop and test innovative approaches to humanitarian practice; provide evidence of the cost effectiveness of investments in disaster risk reduction; provide new evidence on the scaling up of cash-based approaches; support better evidence on insurance as a risk management tool; and create new evidence on the best intervention to improve health and nutrition in emergencies.This is one of three business cases which implements the DFID Humanitarian Innovation and Evidence Strategy. Between 2000-2009, more than 2.2 billion people were affected by 4,484 natural disasters. Vulnerability to hazards is increasing as a result of demographic, political and environmental changes. Demand for humanitarian assistance is likely to rise while economic constraints are also increasing. In this context it is important to ensure that the most effective and cost efficient approch
British people have a direct say in how an element of the aid budget is spent on NGO projectsUK Aid Match allows the UK public to have a say in how an element of the aid budget is spent. DFID will match fund, pound for pound, public donations to appeals made by selected not-for-profit organisations, enabling them to increase their poverty reduction and development work in DFID priority countries.
To reduce hunger gaps, improve long-term food security and mitigate conflict among 400,000 rural poor in five states of South Sudan. By working together beneficiaries earn food or cash in return for identifying and building community assets (such as irrigation ponds). This enables communities to develop and manage their resources against extreme climate damage and shocks. This will contribute to Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 13, 15 and 16 to end poverty and hunger; take action on climate; protect life on land and; promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.
The DRC WASH Consortium programme was launched in July 2013 to deliver sustainable access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for more than 650,000 people living in 700 villages in DRC. Ensuring that these WASH services are sustainable in the long-term is at the heart of the programme’s approach. The consortium consists of five international NGOs, which have been working in the DRC for over 10 years (Concern Worldwide as the lead agency, ACF, ACTED, CRS and Solidarités International).
On Friday 28 September, an earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale rocked the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, triggering a terrifying tsunami that reached 18 feet in height and left a trail of destruction in its wake. The true scale of the disaster is only now becoming clear. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed and entire communities have been decimated. At least 2,100 people have died, thousands more are missing and 200,000 survivors are now in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, around a quarter of whom are children. DEC member charities and their Indonesian partners are working closely with national authorities to provide food, clean water, first aid and shelter, while helping survivors to cope with the trauma of the last few days. As the full scale of devastation unfolds, they are ready to do even more, and with your help, support devastated communities in rebuilding their lives.
The SDNP will support countries (1) to improve analysis and use of nutrition-related data to track progress and to inform evidence-based policies, (2) to address critical data gaps with the objective of ensuring countries get on track to achieve global targets for nutrition. It will also promote accountability for achieving nutrition targets by supporting the Global Nutrition Report from 2017 onwards when the current DFID-funded Driving Delivery for N4G Commitments programme comes to an end. Committing funding for this initiative now will guarantee DFID has direct influence over the direction and focus on this critical accountability tool for nutrition.
The project aims to document and address Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)’s nutritional crisis through SMART surveys and appropriate multisectoral interventions in order to reduce mortality and morbidity linked to severe acute malnutrition, as well as addressing the root causes of undernutrition
Through an integrated approach, AAH, UNICEF and WFP will address the basic nutritional needs and strengthen the food security of vulnerable populations in a selected number of LGAs in Borno and Yobe. Scale up of previous project GB-CHC-1047501-NUT1-Nigeria.
Driving a data revolution to mitigate the impact of shocks and disasters on malnutrition
This project will target to reach an estimated 19,370 people from sanitation and hygiene related intervention and among them at least 5,111 will be the direct beneficiaries of water supply activities. All the beneficiaries of the project are so far unreached by other actors in the area and are among the nutritionally vulnerable and earthquake affected population. Within the target community, specific attention will be paid to the most vulnerable groups’ i.e. Pregnant and lactating women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities, malnourished cases and adolescent girls as well as excluded group of people i.e. people from Balami, Tamang & Dalit community.
TN4C aims to reduce under-nutrition in one of the most nutrition insecure regions of Senegal. By empowering teenagers to improve their food practices, knowledge on reproductive health and access to adapted family planning services, TN4C can break the vicious cycle of under-nutrition: under-nourished teenage mothers giving birth to low weight children. Targeting schools, the community and health services, TN4C will address one of the identified key root causes of under-nutrition.
Priority needs include logistic support, economic recovery, medical assistance, clean water, sanitation and hygiene, recovery of infrastructure and public services, shelter, protection, including women and children's protection, and education. The Joint Needs Assessment (HFI-led) also found that nearly half of the surveyed population face food shortages. Debris and damaged structures need to be removed to reduce risk of further accidents. Most Water and Sanitation infrastructure was affected either by the loss of springs during the quake, or by destruction of the pipes and civil engineering. Liquefaction has also affected many wells and bore holes. Of the 142 IDP sites, many remain with inadequate access to latrines and water supply. Sanitary conditions have significantly deteriorated since the disaster, leading to an increased risk of communicable diseases such as diarrhoea or skin infections. Planned outcomes: 1. People affected by disaster in Central Sulawesi have recovered access to clean water, proper sanitation facilities, and basic hygiene practice promotion. (within 3 months) 2. People affected by disaster in Central Sulawesi have increased food and nutritional security (within 6 months) Action Against Hunger are proposing a multisectoral intervention with WASH, nutrition and food security components, to be delivered through Yakkum Emergency Unit, a local NGO partner, and Aquassistance, a French partner specialising in water, sanitation and waste management. Action Against Hunger will provide 2 water treatment units, with technicians supporting the installation of the units, and te training of YEU, local government and BNPM staff on their operation and maintenance. YEU will provide water trucking services to 10 affected areas and install two temporary water networks as well as hygiene kits for 1000 household and hygiene promotion activities. YEU will also install disability-accessible latrines in the displacement sites. Environmental cleaning will be enabled through distribution of tools to targeted households to permit the affected population to clear rubble and damaged structures. Nutrition and Food Security: YEU will implement daily community kitchens in each of the displacement sites for two months. The Posyandu health centre will then be supported to provide supplementary feeding to children under 5 that have been identified as in need through active screening by YEU staff - trained nurses and protocols. Further to this, all intervention areas will receive counselling on health and Infant and Young Child Feeding.
