Description: The Enhancing Community Resilience Programme (ECRP) in Malawi has worked to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, reduce vulnerability and strengthen the resilience of around 420,000 people across parts of Malawi the hardest hit by climate change. ECRP has enabled vulnerable households to move beyond survival and subsistence, to enjoy thriving and dignified lives. This means enough food and a steady income, safe conditions, and the resources and confidence to embrace new opportunities and manage risks that threaten them. The programme has been funded by UK aid, Irish Aid and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, receiving more than £15m over almost six years until 2017.

Description: With the almost daily monsoon rains, the displaced Rohingya are facing challenges in the makeshift camps they have established in southeast Bangladesh. Canals have become rivers difficult to cross, and temporary shelters have flooded, putting even greater strain on the hundreds of thousands seeking safety after fleeing violence in Myanmar. Images of flooding and river crossings.
An estimated 421,000 Rohingya – a largely stateless Muslim minority in Myanmar – have arrived in Bangladesh since the latest bout of violence broke out on August 25.

A discussion about how development organizations and businesses can support vulnerable communities prepare for flood risk and build a more secure future in the face of persistent shocks and stresses. The Global Resilience Partnership looks to identify and scale local solutions in an effort to pivot away from reactive responses to disasters and build resilient communities. This includes funding innovative projects through challenges like the Water Window so we can help bring these ideas to scale.

Description: The Greater Accra Region in Ghana is one of the fastest growing cities in West Africa, currently hosting over 4 million people. The regional economy accounts for about 25 percent of Ghana's national GDP. However, the unprecedented population growth and unplanned spatial expansion have exceeded the capacity of the city to keep up, resulting in housing shortages, urban sprawl, and informal settlements with inadequate urban services. This makes the Greater Accra Region vulnerable to a range of shocks. This was made clear in June 2015 when the region was deeply impacted by floods which affected over 50,000 people. Working with the World Bank, the Government of Ghana has identified the main issues that make the Greater Accra region vulnerable and formed a forward-looking strategy to create a more resilient Greater Accra Region that can better withstand the impact of disasters and reap the benefits associated with urban growth.

Description: Record heavy rains have triggered landslides and widespread flooding, affecting more than one million of people and creating conditions that are perfect for the spread of the mosquito Aedes aegypti. This mosquito carries dengue which is endemic in the north of Peru, as well as Chikungunya and Zika.
The Ministry of Health has started an aerial-spraying campaign to prevent the spread of the Aedes aegypti mosquito.
The Peruvian Red Cross has been providing assistance to families in the most severely affected people in the worst affected departments of Piura, Tumbes, Lambayeque and La Libertad.
