introduction
Introduction
  • Emergencies can happen anywhere, any time
    • It doesn’t matter how developed a country is, or wealthy or prepared.
  • Impact on communities
    • Disruption of community and state protection mechanisms
    • Disruption/loss of access to basic services
    • Increase in vulnerability (girls pushed into early marriage, sons sent to work…)
resilience
Resilience
  • Yet, there is recognition that the impact of crisis can be mitigated, prevented and prepared for
  • Building resilience
    • The heart of development cooperation’s efforts in humanitarian and development contexts.
    • Development programs need to tackle the root causes of recurrent crisis rather than just their consequences in order to ensure development gains are genuinely sustainable.
    • Working with vulnerable populations to build their resilience is also a fundamental part of poverty reduction –the ultimate goal of EU development policy
what is resilience
What is resilience?

Resilience:

The ability of an individual, a household, a community, a country or a region to withstand, adapt and quickly recover from stresses and shocks such as drought, violence, conflict or natural disaster.

Enhancing capacities

Alleviating underlying causes

resilience in different contexts
Resilience in different contexts
  • High vulnerability/low national capacity to prevent and manage shocks
    • Localized support to service delivery, explicit capacity development strategies targeting the roots of fragility through humanitarian and development interventions
  • High vulnerability/limited, but growing, national capacity
    • Strengthening systems while filling critical gaps, gradually transferring leadership to national institutions
  • High vulnerability/high national systems capacity
    • Advocacy, disaster risk reduction, and policy advice
  • Challenged governance/civil unrest & previously strong national systems suffer a challenges
    • Particularly challenging in regards to promoting child rights
challenges
Challenges
  • Multiple overlapping contexts
    • One agency may therefore be required to take several different approaches to working in the same country
  • Institutional silos
    • Differing timelines for response, priorities, resource allocation, staffing expertise and institutional mandates
  • Duty bearers as violators
    • In armed conflict, often intentionally perpetrate gross violations of child rights as a part of deliberate plan
  • Diminished national capacity
    • Crises can result in destruction of assets and create demands that cannot be met with existing capacities
key strategies
Key strategies
  • Anticipate crises by assessing risks
    • Which significant hazards and threats pose the biggest risk to children and women? Where will these hazards happen? Who are the most vulnerable and therefore the most affected?
  • Build national capacities for preparedness and response
    • Whose and what capacities need to be built?
  • Invest in early warning systems
    • The process of providing timely information through systematic information gathering and risks analysis about potential emergencies
concrete actions
Concrete actions
  • Support national capacities for disaster risk reduction (DRR)
    • Checklist on integration of child rights concerns into DRR programming
  • Support participation of children in local planning, risk assessments, and monitoring
    • Supporting their positive engagement is an important aspect in fostering more inclusive societies
    • There are many concrete ways in which they can contribute

Concrete actions (cont.)

3. Ensure integrated program approaches and strategies

  • Work differently and more effectively together
  • More flexible policies and funding mechanisms
  • More effective coordination and sequencing between humanitarian and development work

4. Engage in joint needs assessments

  • 2011 EU methodology for JHDF for transition situations
