Ethiopia: Drought and food insecurity
Description: The food crisis in Ethiopia follows the consecutive failures of the rains knows as Belg (March-May) and Kiremet (June-September) in 2015, combined with erratic weather conditions attributed to El Niño. As a result, almost every part of Ethiopia has experienced below average rainfall in the past two years, resulting in large numbers of people in need of emergency humanitarian support. IFRC is supporting the Ethiopian Red Cross Society to do what it does best – work within affected communities and accompany them through crisis to greater resilience, and deliver life-saving support to populations other agencies and partners are not able to reach. Together, we are targeting the most isolated communities, the most vulnerable people, the hardest-to-reach, including children under five and pregnant and lactating mothers. We plan to distribute supplementary food, improve malnutrition screening and referral, support community health services, improve access to safe water and hygiene promotion, and reinforce family livelihoods and coping mechanisms.

And without the right support, it can transition from a temporary situation to a chronic issue that affects people’s health.

Lessons on Climate Change from Malawi and Tanzania
Description: In order to support community-level DRR decisions, National Red Cross Societies in Malawi and Tanzania have been working with local and international partners to bridge the gap between science, policy and practice under the Climate Services Adaptation Programme, and more broadly the the Global Framework for Climate Services. The programme seeks to ensure vulnerable communities have better access to and understanding of climate forecast information, are able to make informed choices and decisions about their livelihoods, and are therefore more resilient to a changing climate. This video draws from comments made during the programme’s participatory evaluation process.
