To support a resilient health system in Zimbabwe that is equipped to deliver quality sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition services. In total the programme will benefit 5.4 million women and children in Zimbabwe and help save over 13,000 lives.
Contribute to the reduction of morbidity and mortality due to water, sanitation and hygiene related diseases. To reduce burden of water collection on women and girls; to improve basic education and gender equality. The programme target areas where effects of climate change and variability such as droughts and floods have affected community access to safe drinking water. Specifically, the programme is (i) Increasing the number of water sources in affected areas through rehabilitating and drilling high yielding and perennial water sources, (ii) Installing more energy efficient and clean solar powered Piped water systems with water storage facilities to ensure constant water supply and efficient water demand management during periods of water stress, (iii) Promoting water conservation through constructing waste water collection troughs at water points for livestock and (iv) Working with district water and sanitation technicians to construct climate resilient infrastructure.
To have more and better quality education and skills training from pre-primary to tertiary education in Zambia. This will benefit 75,356 primary level and 12,603 lower secondary level boys and girls and contributes to our MDGs by improving access and equity of education by 2016. (Nutsen)
To protect poor and vulnerable people, save lives and help developing countries to get back on their feet more quickly after a disaster by working with governments to strengthen planning, embed early action, and use “risk financing” tools like insurance and contingent credit to finance more cost-effective, rapid and reliable response to emergencies. It aims to empower governments to build resilience to natural disasters and climate change, and take ownership of their risks, with more assistance delivered through pre-financed government-led systems. Funded by the UK Government Prosperity Fund.
Leverages the UK’s unique position as the world’s leading financial centre to increase access to finance for firms and individuals, promoting shared prosperity through inclusive economic growth overseas, and the development of new markets
This programme will provide £15 million over three years to prevent and respond to violence, abuse and exploitation of children in support of Sustainable Development Goal 16.2. It will fund an international movement to build political will, strengthen collaboration and accelerate action to protect the world’s vulnerable children. Through strategic partnerships with specialist agencies it will also address the particular vulnerabilities of children on the move, reducing their risk of exposure to forms of modern slavery.
To undertake multi-country research to generate operationally relevant evidence on how to design, fund and better deliver essential services that can respond to shocks in weak and fragile and conflict affected states.
The project will support countries in Southern Africa to manage their shared water resources, thereby helping 2-3 million poor people to better cope with the impacts of existing climate variability and climate change (especially floods and drought). It will do this by improving assessment and planning concerning these resources, and designing and building water infrastructure such as irrigation schemes, water supply or hydropower schemes. This will help poor and vulnerable people gain access to clean and safe water, produce a predictable agricultural yield and store water for when it is needed during the dry months of the year. The programme will also help countries to communicate hydrological data between themselves – thus providing downstream countries with advance notice of floods and enabling countries to optimise how much water is stored in each country to ensure each has enough to meet their basic requirements.
