La résilience urbaine est un produit de la capacité des ménages à absorber le stress, à s’adapter et à transformer la marge d’action en gestion du risque. Cette note politique décrit dans ses grandes lignes une nouvelle méthodologie mise au point pour explorer divers aspects de la résilience dans des contextes urbains très pauvres où les biens économiques sont connus limités. La méthode a été développée en réponse à des demandes de Save the Children pour explorer les possibilités d’adaptation d’un outil de suivi de la sécurité alimentaire en zones rurales.
This policy brief presents information on the full spectrum of risks facing the inhabitants of Karonga, and these have been identified by Karonga residents as resulting in premature death or injury and/or affecting their livelihoods and assets. Full knowledge of the risks can help policy makers highlight where risk reduction is needed and possible.
This brief outlines a new methodology developed to investigate aspects of resilience in very poor urban contexts where economic assets are universally constrained. It was developed in response to requests from Save the Children to explore options for adapting a rural food security monitoring tool, the Household Economy Approach (HEA), to urban contexts.
The new methodology was applied in Niamey, Niger to a study examining the resilience of households in areas of the city subjected to flooding every rainy season. This brief presents the method, findings, and lessons learnt.

This policy brief presents the implications of Sweden’s feminist foreign policy for the people they strive to assist, Sweden’s own humanitarian policy and operations, and more broadly the whole humanitarian community. It provides recommendations on how a feminist informed humanitarian policy should be implemented to intersect with other foreign policy areas and broader humanitarian, development and security action at the national and international level.
The specific recommendations it includes are related to ensuring:

This is the final report developed as part of a research project, commissioned by the Cash Learning Partnership and undertaken by the Humanitarian Futures Programme, that explores what cash transfer programming might look like in the future (2020-2025), the implications for institutionalisation of cash by humanitarian actors, private sector, donors and Governments, and the priority areas for further research or future action in order for CTP to be ‘fit for the future’.

This thematic report has been undertaken as part of a 2013 research study entitled, Is Cash Transfer Programming ‘Fit for the Future’? The research was commissioned by the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) and undertaken by the Humanitarian Futures Programme (HFP), King’s College London. The overall project intends to understand how changes in the broader global and humanitarian landscape may evolve in the future (up to 2025), and how these changes might shape cash transfer programming (CTP).
Needs assessments are vital to identify the needs that are present in an affected population, and to inform the humanitarian response. There have been repeated recommendations for increased participation of affected populations in humanitarian assessment. Participation is seen as essential for avoiding basic mistakes in resource allocation, programme design, accountability, and for supporting psychosocial well-being.
