UK Aid Match II

MannionDaniels

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.

East Africa Crisis Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

Hunger on a massive scale is looming across East Africa. If we don’t act now, it will get much worse. Drought and conflict have left 16 million people on the brink of starvation and in urgent need of food, water and medical treatment. People are already dying in South Sudan and Somalia. In Kenya, the government has declared a national emergency and Ethiopia is battling a new wave of drought following the strongest El Nino on record. Women, children and older people are suffering the most; more than 800,000 children under five are severely malnourished. Without immediate treatment, they are at risk of starving to death.  DEC member charities are already delivering life-saving assistance in all affected countries. But, they need more money to help reduce the scale and severity of the crisis.

Cyclone Idai Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe leaving behind a trail of destruction, killing at least 960 people and leaving around 3 million in need of help. Strong winds and widespread flooding ripped apart roads, bridges, houses, schools and health facilities and submerged vast swathes of agricultural land. As flood levels recede, work to clear debris, reopen roads and reconnect electricity and water supplies is underway. Some people who fled their homes as flood waters rose are returning home but more than 230,000 remain displaced across three countries and are living in communal sites such as schools and churches. A growing number of cholera cases have been confirmed and there is a high risk of outbreaks of other waterborne diseases as supplying clean water remains a significant challenge. The aid effort is fully underway and DEC member charities are working closely with national partners to support government-led relief efforts. They are prioritising the delivery of clean water, building toilets and handwashing facilities to tackle the outbreak of cholera. They are also delivering emergency shelter materials and blankets, food such as pulses and maize flour, and urgent health assistance. Focusing on longer-term food security and rehabilitation of livelihoods is paramount and some members are already providing seeds and tools to communities.

Indonesia Tsunami Appeal

Disasters Emergency Committee

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.

Nepal SURE programme

British Red Cross

The Strengthening Urban Resilience and Engagement ( SURE ) programme is a five-year DFID-funded multi-hazard urban risk reduction programme running from September 2016 until August 2021. Given emerging risks and hazard trends the programme continues engagement in the three districts of the Kathmandu valley and expanding further west into two additional districts. The programme aims to see increased action in target municipalities by citizens government and the Nepal Red Cross Society to reduce and respond to multi hazard risks increasing overall disaster resilience and enabling timely and effective response by the Nepal Red Cross Society. The targeted municipalities include six within the previously-engaged districts of the Kathmandu valley namely: Kathmandu sub-metropolitan city and Budhanilkantha municipality in Kathmandu district Bajrabarahi and Karyabinayak municipalities in Lalitpur district and Bhaktapur and Madhyapur Thimi municipalities in Bhaktapur district and two additional municipalities in the West and Far-West specifically Pokhara sub-metropolitan city and Dhangadhi sub-metropolitan city. Impact: Target municipalities have increased their disaster resilience and are supported by the Nepal Red Cross Society with timely and effective disaster response. Outcome: Targeted municipalities are increasingly taking action to reduce and respond to multi hazard risks through citizens government and the Nepal Red Cross Society. Output 1: Awareness and action in urban DRR for informed citizen voice and greater social accountability is increased enhancing DRR capacity in targeted municipalities. Output 2: DRR advocacy and support and strengthening of preparedness for response enhances the capacity of municipalities and is aligned to existing policies and structures. Output 3: NRCS is stronger and well organised in order to better respond to vulnerable communities and individuals. Output 4: NRCS and BRC actively learn with urban partners and external institutions to contribute to improved thematic and institutional knowledge and practice enabling efficient and effective programming with partners.
