Enhancing Community Resilience Programme 2011-2017

The Enhancing Community Resilience Programme (ECRP) was designed to address the chronic climate vulnerability faced by rural people in Malawi. It started in 2011 and is closing in 2017. The purpose of the ECRP is to increase the resilience of vulnerable communities to climate variability and change. DFID, Irish Aid and the Royal Norwegian Embassy fund the ECRP. Its total budget is £30.6m, of which £27m is provided by DFID.

ECRP had five major components that aim to build resilience to climate change. They are 1) improved capacity of local authorities (especially village, area and district civil protection committees); 2) improved and resilient livelihoods for vulnerable households in target areas; 3) enhanced early warning for District Governments and vulnerable households; 4) informed policy in areas relevant to climate and disaster resilience;
and 5) strengthened humanitarian response and recovery. Component 4 is managed by CEPA which aims to distil lessons learnt from the programme to advocate for improved policies and programmes at district and national level. Component five was added in 2015-16, following large scale floods that affected the country in January 2015, with the recovery component supporting households affected both by floods and the subsequent drought.

ECRP Baseline Survey Report

ECRP is a climate change adaptation and resilience building programme implemented by a consortium made up of CARE, Action Aid with Christian Aid as managing agency. The programme aims at reducing the existing and future negative impact caused by natural hazards and climate change by strengthening capacity of vulnerable communities to cope better with these climatic risks and become more resilient.
The programme outcome objective is to enable 305,000 people (27 774 male headed and 33226 female headed households) from seven vulnerable districts develop their capacity to increase their resilience to climatic risk by June 2016. This will contribute to the reduction of extreme poverty and hunger which will in turn contribute to the attainment of the Hyogo Framework for Action by halving disaster losses and increasing communities’ resilience to climate change in Malawi.
The baseline survey was undertaken to identify benchmarks on impact, outcome and output indicators against which programme progress will be measured. It was carried out during the period June to August 2012. Read More...
