IMPACT and REACH adapt programming to inform COVID-19 humanitarian response

Up-to-date data collection efforts and analysis are critical to ensure humanitarian action is targeted effectively and the most vulnerable populations prioritized in the COVID-19 response. Data and analysis are needed to ensure new regions or countries affected by the crisis are monitored closely. In many countries IMPACT, notably through its REACH initiative, has been contacted to provide this support.

“Women and Girls in Internal Displacement” report calls for more gender-disaggregated data

Out of the 41 million people displaced worldwide, over half are women and girls. Even more concerning is the fact that the repercussions and negative impacts of living in internal displacement seem to affect women more than men. Read what lead author, Christelle Cabazat, and contributors from IMPACT, have to say about the importance of collecting more gender-disaggregated data leading to better analysis, and response.

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

AGORA is an interagency initiative of IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED, and promotes the stabilisation of fragile crisis-affected areas by strengthening local crisis response capacities and enabling inclusive recovery efforts. AGORA’s work is structured around two pillars: synergies between local actors and exogenous aid stakeholders and the use of settlements as the territorial unit for the planning, coordination and provision of aid and basic services.

By doing so, AGORA not only improves the efficiency, relevance and effectiveness of humanitarian response but also promotes a more sustainable recovery of crisis-affected communities, providing a partnership and territorial framework that enables linkages between relief, rehabilitation and development action.

 

AGORA’S MISSION

Building synergies and platforms of engagement between local actors and exogenous aid stakeholders. Promoting the use of settlements as the territorial unit for the provision of aid and basic services.

 

AGORA’S VISION
