Concern’s commitment to leaving no one behind has increasingly taken the organisation to fragile contexts, where the devastating consequences of conflict and resulting levels of human suffering have soared in recent years.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
Around the world, CARE celebrated its anniversary in 2016, remembering that day 70 years ago when the first CARE Packages arrived in Europe, bringing food and other essential survival supplies.
Today, a CARE Package looks very different.
Christian Aid launches new framework for building resilience in poor communities
International development agency Christian Aid has launched a new framework outlining one of its ‘priority approaches’ to tackling poverty – building the resilience of women, men and children in poor and marginalised communities.
Published this week, the organisation’s new Resilience Framework has been developed as a practical tool designed to bridge the gap between humanitarian and development work.

Objectives and activities
In 2015, as the Millennium Development Goals reach their deadline, the world can reflect on real progress. Since 1990, thanks to the actions of millions of people around the globe, extreme income poverty has been cut by almost two-thirds, child mortality has fallen by more than half, and more children are attending primary school than ever before.
But these achievements tell only part of the story.
This sets out Oxfam’s proposals for a successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for the period after 2015. At this early stage of the debate, our recommendations focus on:
• the overall vision, purpose and core principles that should guide a new framework (section 1)
• critical issues to be included, and how they should be treated (section 2a)
• proposed targets and commitments in a few core areas (section 2b)
It is an initial contribution, and our views will develop and be enriched as the global conversation continues toward 2015.
Realizing human rights and achieving sustainable development are inter-dependent and mutually-reinforcing goals. States must ensure that the Outcome Document of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development recognizes the centrality of human rights to sustainable development and reaffirms the international human rights framework.

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.
CARE releases report about poverty in remote PNG
CARE Australia has today released a unique but bleak report, Rural Poverty in Remote Papua New Guinea, which provides a detailed statistical snapshot of life for remote communities in rural Papua New Guinea (PNG).
The report, which is a result of collaboration between CARE Australia and the Australian National University’s Development Policy Centre, highlights the ongoing issue of disadvantage in an area which is home to 15 percent of the country’s population.
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 FY 2009 edition of Building a Better World, our Annual Report, is now available.
This year's report has the theme 'Integrated Approach to Development' and focuses on CHF's ability to bring together communities, government, the private sector, local organizations and other stakeholders to provide integrated, holistic development programming in the communities where we work around the world.
The report has three main sections:

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.
