Productive Water Technologies to enhance resilience for smallholder farming households in Chiredzi and Mberengwa Baseline Report

CARE International in Zimbabwe is implementing the Productive Water Technologies to enhance Resilience for Smallholder Farming Households initiative, within two existing CARE resilience building projects. The LDSC-funded intervention will complement the software components of two ongoing CARE projects funded by the Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund (ZRBF), which is managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The two CARE projects, Enhancing Community Resilience and Sustainability (ECRAS) running from July 2016 to March 2021, and Enhancing Community Resilience and Inclusive Market Systems (ECRIMS) running from September 2017 to October 2020, are being implemented in Chiredzi (and Mwenezi) and Mberengwa (and Zvishavane) districts respectively.
The current projects mainly focus on software (training, capacity-building, etc.), with limited establishment of water infrastructure. Specifically, the new initiative will support year-round access to productive water for smallholder farming households in Chiredzi and Mberengwa districts through the establishment/construction and rehabilitation of water infrastructure and related production assets. Year-round water access will address challenges relating to livestock and crop production, thus helping improve food and nutrition security for smallholder farming households, including those headed by women and youth. Some of the water points also will provide safe drinking water. In each of the two districts (Mberengwa and Chiredzi), the proposed project interventions will be layered on and integrated with the two ongoing CARE projects to enhance resilience and sustainability. Both ECRAS and ECRIMS aim to increase community capacities to sustain development gains and achieve improved well-being in the face of shocks and stresses. The projects, which enhance household and community resilience, seek to achieve five outcomes: Household and community capacities and assets are strengthened to deal with economic and climate-related shocks and stresses [54 pages].

Impact Evaluation of the Strengthen PSNP4 Institutions and Resilience (SPIR) Development Food Security Activity (DFSA) Baseline

World Vision, CARE and ORDA designed the SPIR DFSA to support delivery of PSNP4 while also developing and delivering multisectoral programming across the four project purposes in order to enhance livelihoods, increase resilience to shocks, and improve food security and nutrition for PSNP4 clients. The SPIR project will use community-level programming, training of government staff involved in public service delivery at the woreda (district) and kebele (subdistrict) level, and targeted livelihood transfers to support and strengthen PSNP4. Resource transfers received by SPIR participants will come primarily from transfers received from the PSNP4, as well as one-time livelihood transfers provided to the poorest PNSP clients to support livelihoods and promote graduation. Most other benefits of the SPIR project appear in the form of improved public service delivery and trainings to promote learning and support for community-level groups. For learning purposes, the SPIR impact evaluation combines major core components and innovative new activities under Purpose 1 on livelihoods and Purpose 2 on nutrition, along with selected activities under Purpose 3 on gender and youth and Purpose 4 on climate resilience, into a study design of overlapping interventions to learn what combination of activities has the greatest impact and is most cost-effective at improving SPIR outcomes [128 pages].

Attached to the Baseline Report are 3 Learning Briefs, The effects of SPIR poultry and unconditional cash transfers on livelihoods outcomes, The effects of SPIR interventions on nutrtion and childcare, and The effects of SPIR livelihoods and nutrition interventions on women’s and men’s well-being.

Integrated GBV prevention and response to the emergency needs of newly displaced women, men, girls, and boys in Borno State, North-East Nigeria Baseline

To ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of the project, CARE pays specific attention to the changes to be made, effects and impacts of the intervention for displaced populations, and hosts affected within Borno State. It therefore appears necessary to define the baseline situation in order to have information that can provide precise indicators on the sector concerned by the assistance, and to develop a monitoring and evaluation system for the continuous updating of the changes and facilitate the analysis of the transformations induced at the end of the project. A total of 3 IDP camps (Arabic camp and International Secondary School of in Ngala and Government Secondary School GSS camp in Bama LGA) and 4 host communities (Ngala, Gambaru A and B in Ngala and Bama town in Bama LGA) were covered by the baseline, within the two targeted LGAs. Taking 5% of each population, 5,009 respondents in Bama and 2,054 respondents in Ngala were surveyed [23 pages]. Read More...

Proyecto Aprendemos+ Crecemos y Emprendemos Siempre Baseline Evaluation

El sistema educativo peruano se caracteriza por brechas de aprendizaje que afectan a las escuelas multigrado rurales, y están vinculadas a problemas de calidad en el servicio educativo. A esta brecha educativa se le sumó en 2020 la crisis sanitaria del COVID-19 que supuso la suspensión de clases y la implementación remedial de una propuesta educativa remota a nivel nacional, denominada Aprendo en Casa.
El proyecto APRENDEMOS+ CRECEMOS Y EMPRENDEMOS SIEMPRE es la respuesta educativa de CARE Perú para mejorar los aprendizajes de las Instituciones Educativas de nivel primaria multigrado en ámbitos rurales durante el estado de emergencia del COVID-19 y la educación a distancia. El proyecto se implementó en escuelas rurales de Amazonas y Cajamarca en 2019. En 2020, se está implementando en 115 instituciones educativas multigrado y/o unidocentes de las regiones de Amazonas, Cajamarca, Huánuco y Pasco. La intervención cuenta con tres componentes: un componente pedagógico que busca fortalecer las capacidades de los y las docentes/directores para la implementación de la propuesta pedagógica innovadora centrada en la convivencia saludable y educación social y emprendedora; un componente de gestión escolar centrada en la participación, la convivencia y el bienestar socioemocional, a partir de la asesoría a directivos en materia de planificación y gestión escolar; y un componente de soporte que busca promover el aprendizaje autónomo a través de herramientas digitales, para salvaguardar la salud integral de los y las estudiantes.
El presente informe presenta los resultados del Estudio de Línea de Base del proyecto, desarrollado en el mes de junio y julio de 2020. El estudio está compuesto por dos componentes (cuantitativo y cualitativo), y busca medir los indicadores inicio del proyecto y compararlos con un área de no intervención. Para el componente cuantitativo se aplicaron encuestas a 102 directivos, 55 docentes, 411 estudiantes y 111 padres/madres o cuidadores de escuelas tratamiento (intervenidas por el proyecto) y escuelas control (es decir, sin intervención). Para el componente cualitativo se seleccionaron ocho escuelas (cuatro tratamiento y cuatro control) y se aplicaron 48 entrevistas a directivos, docentes, estudiantes, padres/madres/cuidadores y agentes comunitarios.

Jarablus Needs Overview

Since January 2020, Syria's economic future is increasingly becoming uncertain. Regional actors and local commmunities, who were previously acting as an economic bridge to the outside world, are facing their own economic turmoil and leaving Syria isolated with unprecedent depreciation of the Syrian Pound. The interlinked nature of Syria’s politics, economy and infrastructure are now forcing citizens to choose between the uncertainty of a pandemic or reality of household deprivation at the confluence of the conflict, economic crisis and COVID-19 pandemic.

This infographic aims to present an overview of the needs in Jarablus through an internal analysis of data collected by
Humanitarian Needs Assessment Programme during the months of July and August 2020. Read More...
