Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters

UK Department for International Development

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.

DFID Iraq Humanitarian and Responsible Transition 2019-2022

UK Department for International Development

In 2014, Daesh’s expansion across Iraq set ablaze a major humanitarian crisis, compelling the UK to respond to acute needs, and also to join the counter-Daesh global coalition. Daesh has now been defeated as a territory-holding force, and increasing numbers of people have returned home. However, the situation is precarious, and complex humanitarian needs remain for many. From 2019-2022, DFID Iraq will respond to the acute needs of the most vulnerable, address the complex needs of high-risk protracted caseloads, promote responsible transition to national-led efforts, and fund enabling activities crucial to achieving this. The funding envelope for this programme reflects that DFID Iraq is planning for the best, but preparing for the worst – a seemingly optimistic trajectory one month may belie a precarious situation the next. DFID Iraq will monitor any deterioration, setting trigger points to indicate if or when we will approach ministers for any critical change in approach.

Resilient Market Systems

Mercy Corps Europe

This project covers an initial expansion of the achievements of the Demonstrating a Market System Approach in Bidibidi and Palorinya Settlements (ReHope project) funded by DFID from July 2017-June 2018. The pilot was implemented in partnership with The Palladium Group NUTEC-Market Development programme, also funded by DFID, as well as DanChurchAid (DCA). The pilot successfully found that MSD is a viable approach to refugee response with a critical mass of early adopter refugee and host community farmers, agrodealers, input and output agents and private sector partners looking to expand agricultural production, support services and buying in West Nile in and around refugee hosting districts. Based on these key findings, the project intends to begin an initial period of expansion during a 12-month period of planned bridge funding (ReHope BRIDGE) of a 5-year Resilience Strategy.
