Humanitarian Aid

Evaluation de Ligne de Base du Project Urbayiti

Extrêmement affecté par l’ouragan Matthew de catégorie 4 qui a frappé Haiti en Octobre 2016, la ville de Jérémie1, chef-lieu du département de la Grand’Anse, reste extrêmement vulnérable aux catastrophes plus de deux ans après ce sinistre. En effet, sa position géographique dans le bassin de la Caraïbe l’expose à de nombreux risques naturels tels que séismes, ouragans, tsunamis et pluies dévastatrices.

D’un point de vue de la structure urbaine, Jérémie souffre d’un manque de planification et d’un niveau de gestion territoriale inadapté à la pression démographique actuelle. Il en résulte un développement chaotique de la ville qui, entre autres, ne prend pas en compte l’exposition aux risques et n’est pas associé à une offre de services de base. De plus, la pauvreté chronique des populations, aggravée par les fréquentes catastrophes, ne permet pas aux habitants les plus démunis de développer un niveau de résilience minimal leur permettant de garantir leur propre intégrité physique, et de capitaliser pour réaliser une évolution significative tant sur le point économique que social.

En vue d’adresser une série de problèmes structurels, environnementaux, sociaux et économiques enregistrés au niveau de la partie urbaine de la commune de Jérémie, CARE HAITI et CBM implémentent, depuis Mai 2018 et jusqu’à Avril 2022, le Projet « Vil nou pi bèl » dénommé UrbAyiti au niveau de la ville de Jérémie financé par l’Union Européenne.

Le projet a été lancé officiellement en Octobre 2018 et, avant le début des activités à fort impact sur les bénéficiaires, CARE a réalisé la ligne de base afin d’avoir un instantané de la situation. Ce qui devra permettre de mieux affiner les activités du projet et de mesurer l’effet du projet sur les bénéficiaires ciblés. Read More...

Women’s economic empowerment in emergency contexts: Niger case study

While discussion of the ‘Humanitarian, Development and Peace Nexus’ continues within the sector, there remains debate as to whether women’s economic empowerment is a luxury, or even feasible in humanitarian contexts where the priority is to keep people alive. Increasingly, however, humanitarians are seeing interventions aimed at women’s economic empowerment in emergency contexts as a key tool to increase protection and support people in crises to live in dignity. CARE set out to analyse whether financial inclusion strategies like community-led savings groups may in fact represent a way to not only respond to crises, but also to build resilience against them, even in highly fluid contexts.

In June 2018, CARE teams conducted fieldwork in two areas where it is implementing ongoing humanitarian interventions. CARE organised focus groups and interviews with communities and individuals in Diffa and Konni where it has delivered humanitarian assistance. The interventions combined blanket cash distributions, and the establishment of savings and credit groups which also provided women with life skills and business training to set up small businesses.

Within a crisis setting, combining a savings group structure including income generation support with humanitarian assistance such as food and non-food items (NFIs) helped women not only to meet basic needs in a more sustainable way, but also improved their independent access to and control over money.

During emergencies, providing women with humanitarian cash to cover basic needs allowed women in savings groups to continue saving and to invest in income generating activities (IGA), rather than using up capital on food.

If crises continue to hit, the positive impact of savings groups set up in emergencies can become strained. In this case, further cash interventions can preserve small businesses.

Membership of savings groups and receipt of IGAs and life skills training increased women’s income and confidence. Membership of a savings group provides psychosocial benefits to women who are suffering anxiety, depression or trauma by providing a social network that meets and talks regularly. Read More...

Rapid Gender Analysis – SNNP Region Ethiopia and Gedeo Crisis Response

As of July 14, conflict between Guji Oromo and Gedeo communities displaced over 1 million people (82 per cent in Gedeo; 19 per cent West Guji zones). Internally displaced people (IDPs) stay in cramped public buildings and spontaneous IDP sites while other live with host communities. This massive and sudden population displacement prompted CARE Ethiopia to expand its emergency programme in the South Nation, Nationalities People Region (SNNPR). Consistent with its focus on gender equality, CARE initiated a rapid gender analysis (RGA) to provide gendered data on needs, power relations, access and controls, risks and coping strategies of displaced women, men, boys and girls affected by the conflict.

An RGA mission led by CARE International Rapid Response Team Gender Specialist took place in Dilla town, Gedeb and Yirgachafe woredas (administrative unit in Ethiopia) between 25 and 31 July. Read More...
