Malawi Launches Resilience Study Report

The International Non government Organisation INGO consortium has hosted a learning event and launched a resilience study report.

The resilience study report assesses effectiveness of the resilience activities and provides key lessons and recommendations for application in the design of similar projects through replication and scaling up.

Guest of honour at the event that has been held under the theme “breaking the cycle of humanitarian assistance -early lessons from field practice,” is vice president Dr Saulosi Chilima.

“During the function the consortium has shared lessons and best practices from its DFID funded project entitled “Breaking the cycle of humanitarian assistance through enhancing resilience and shock responsive capacity,” reads the statement by various organisations.

The project is being implemented in selected TA’s identified as most at risk of food insecurity by Malawi vulnerability assessment committee across 10 districts.

The intervention has emergency cash transfer and resilience building components.

The emergency cash transfer component seeks to alleviate suffering and restore dignity among affected households while the resilience activities seek to improve household productive capacity, reduce negative coping strategies and increase household asset base.
