Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction into Humanitarian Programmes

  • Lessons learnt and recommendations following the FRIEND Program


Presentation Objectives: Lessons learnt after the FRIEND Program: How to mainstream DRR in emergencies operation?

  • Why it is important?

  • Key areas of mainstreaming for emergency operations

  • Lessons learnt and recommendations

Value add of integrating drr into emergency operations why it is important
Value-Add of Integrating DRR into Program: Emergency Operations Why it is important?

  • DRR saves lives by increasing community & individual action that protects life, infrastructure and livelihoods when humanitarian actors are not yet present.

  • DRR contributes towards ending the vicious cycle of poverty and links emergency intervention with government actions

  • DRR decreases the need and cost of humanitarian intervention by making infrastructure and communities more resilient and reducing the detrimental effects of recurrent humanitarian intervention (aid dependency)

  • DRR increases project sustainability, impact and strengthens humanitarian actors exit strategies.

Key areas for mainstreaming drr into emergency actions
Key Areas for Mainstreaming DRR into Emergency Actions Program:

  • CASH FOR WORK:

  • Scheme design & Construction Quality

    • Community Ownership of Schemes

      • Local ownership by participative maintenance systems

      • Inclusion of the schemes in the government plans

  • Important Considerations:

    • Budget Limitations & DRR Materials

  • 4

    Key areas for mainstreaming drr into emergency actions1
    Key Areas for Mainstreaming DRR into Emergency Actions sustainability

    • Cash for training/ unconditional training

    • Choice of modules & targeting based on gender analysis and existing DRR plans

    • Difference between user and decision maker taken in account in the targetting.

    • Module content, focus & timing

    Key areas for mainstreaming drr into emergency actions2
    Key Areas for Mainstreaming DRR into Emergency Actions sustainability

    • strengthening disaster management institutions

    • DMC consultation & involvement encourages activation & community interaction.

    • Scheme selection can contribute towards the implementation of Risk Reduction Action Plans (RRAP’s)

    Key areas for mainstreaming drr into emergency actions3
    Key Areas for Mainstreaming DRR into Emergency Actions sustainability

    • Assessment and Monitoring

    • Evaluation of the Knowledge, Aptitudes and Practices of the local DMC’s (according to the existing SOD) and communities to identify training needs and address identified gaps

    • Coping Strategy Index and a rapid HEA in comparison of Food Consumption Score or other food security indicators

    • A micro-level stakeholder analysis for scheme selection

    • A rapid gender analysis for the targeting strategy and training module design

    • A rapid market analysis to anticipate inflations risks and chose the best way to stimulate the local market

    Lessons learnt and recommendations
    Lessons Learnt and Recommendations sustainability

    • Integrating DRR into emergency response programs can be relatively simple and low cost:

    • Scheme design, technical assessment, appropriate site selection, engineering and adequate DRR reinforcement materials and soil quality.

    • Development of minimum standards for scheme design, technical training of field facilitators, increased budget for DRR materials, incorporation of low cost design features and tools.

    • Linkages developed with LGAs and relevant government bodies for scheme sustainability, involvement of PIC in design, implementation and capacity building for scheme maintenance.

    • Involvement and reactivation of DMCs for systems strengthening.

    • Trainings to help community better understand the linkages between their food security and disaster & climate change risk, livelihood resilience, hazard mitigation and risk reduction of schemes.

    • Baseline KAP and evaluation of applied learning to be included
