This working paper provides an analysis of economic resilience at the national level, presenting a broad picture of changes in resilience to climate extremes over a 42 year period. It focuses on 12 countries in the Sahel, East Africa and Asia that are part of the UK Government funded resilience programme Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED).
Refugees across the global South are increasingly choosing to venture into cities rather than staying in camps. Currently, approximately half of the global refugee population now lives and pursues their livelihoods in non-camp settings. Increasingly, these urban refugees are undertaking their own entrepreneurial initiatives, often in sectors in which they have no prior experience. Most also lack access to the micro-loans that could help them start businesses.
This edition of Humanitarian Exchange, co-edited with ELRHA Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) manager Kim Scriven, focuses on innovation in the humanitarian sector.

Kim Scriven provides an overview of the rising interest in and funding for innovation, while highlighting what more needs to be done to improve the evidence base, relocate capacity and develop guidance.
This 50th edition of Humanitarian Exchange, co-edited with Rachel Houghton, focuses exclusively on partnerships in humanitarian action. Articles explore a wide range of different arrangements, including clusters, consortia and networks, involving NGOs, the UN, the private sector, academic researchers, ‘southern’ or local organisations and host governments.
The articles in this issue of Humanitarian
Exchange investigate key issues of concern for the IDPs of Northern Uganda,
including protection and livelihoods, to inform strategy development in
response to this changing context.
Thought-provoking articles challenge traditional approaches to assistance in camps, and explore the role of the government and the international community in providing, not only key services, but also law and order, to bring about stability and ensure protection for the people of Northern Uganda.
