2014-2016 Strategic Response Plan Chad

SUMMARY

Strategic objectives

  • Track and analyse risk and vulnerability, integrating findings into humanitarian and development programming.

  • Support vulnerable populations to better cope with shocks by responding earlier to warning signals, by reducing post-crisis recovery times and by building capacity of national actors.

  • Deliver coordinated and integrated life-saving assistance to people affected by emergencies.

Priority actions

The overarching aim of the Coordination cluster, in collaboration with all stakeholders, is to mobilize and coordinate appropriate principled and timely humanitarian assistance in response to assess needs. Priority activities for the cluster are to ensure robust and strategic coordination through the humanitarian architecture of the HCT, ICC and clusters and to improve analysis and reporting on the humanitarian situation. Furthermore, the Coordination cluster will facilitate contingency planning, inter-agency rapid needs assessments, needs analysis and response while building the capacities of national authorities to respond to emergencies.

Early recovery activities will be implemented in the Sahel-belt as well as in West and South Chad benefiting 700,000 people. Planned activities include capacity building (disaster risk reduction, conflict management, etc.) of national authorities and communities to reduce vulnerabilities and strengthening community resilience. Economic recovery activities will target youth and women.

Education planned activities will benefit 400,000 people in the Sahel-belt of Chad and in areas affected by both conflict and natural disasters aiming to increase access to quality education for all affected children, promote equity between boys and girls and strengthen institutional capacity of the government and community based associations.
