- Our year (GRI 1.1)
Yet again, over the past year there have been complex humanitarian emergencies occurring on an unimaginable scale. Oxfam’s emergency response to the January earthquake in Haiti was still underway when huge flooding hit Pakistan in August 2010 affecting an overwhelming 20 million people.
Total Disaster Risk Management (TDRM)
Like many international organisations involved in the delivery of medical and humanitarian aid to vulnerable communities, MERCY Malaysia has been actively involved in providing emergency assistance to affected populations.
In January 2005, MERCY Malaysia began implementing its key domestic and international projects and programmes by utilising a holistic approach to manage natural disasters,
Total Disaster Risk Management (TDRM).
Against the backdrop of the global economic crisis, the food crisis and climate-related humanitarian crises, the past year has seen Oxfam working hard with partners and allies to address the impact of global shocks on poor people around the world. Increasingly, we are trying to increase the resilience of people living in poverty and put them at the center of our efforts.
The central commitment of our Strategic Plan 2007-2012, ‘Demanding Justice’, which will guide our joint work during the plan period, is:
“We are outraged by the persistent poverty and injustice in the world, which must and can be overcome. Unjust policies and practices, nationally and internationally, must be challenged and people’s rights must be respected. If we join forces and act together now we can achieve a just world without poverty.
