Niger et RCA: les acteurs locaux au cœur de la réponse
The massive earthquake that struck Nepal on the 25th of April in 2015 caused over 3,000 deaths and affected the lives of millions. To support the humanitarian response, IMPACT Initiatives deployed an emergency REACH team to the country only two days after the earthquake. The deployment focused on assessing the priority needs of affected populations, including their shelter, food, health, water and sanitation needs.
Throughout the deployment, REACH teams conducted various assessments in the most affected areas, including some that were extremely difficulties to access. A total of 15 district profiles were established recording critical data on displacement, housing damage, temporary shelter infrastructures and humanitarian needs.
In August 2015, REACH was re-deployed to Nepal to support in the monitoring efforts of the Shelter Cluster’s response and conduct an assessment for the Food Security Cluster.

IMPACT Initiatives, notably via its REACH, AGORA, and PANDA initiatives, is increasingly committing research efforts to inform the aid community on how to tackle climate risk. The objective?

By conducting scientifically robust risk assessments, working with local actors to develop a better understanding of risk, and building local analytical and communication capacities.
Our 2020 activities helped impact ground level operational planning, strategic planning and decision-making and bring about system-wide change. Our work was also most commonly cited by partners as “strongest added value”
In March 2020 the Ugandan government took quick action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 across its borders. However, the recommended preventative behaviors were not met with broad acceptance in Uganda. IMPACT Initiative, as part of its participation to the U-Learn consortium, conducted a mixed-methods assessment to understand why.
Le Sud-Est de la République Centrafricaine apparaît comme particulièrement affecté par les conséquences d’une crise prolongée, entravant le développement socio-économique et déchirant les liens inter et intra-communautaires. L’accès aux services de base y est dégradé, les activités économiques réduites et la présence de l’État ténue. L’objectif des équipes AGORA sur place? Améliorer le quotidien de 200 000 bénéficiaires d’ici juin 2022, en s’appuyant sur des Plans de relèvement local.
To support aid organizations and local partners in putting this concept into practice, IMPACT Initiatives and partners of the Urban Settlements Working Group released the “Settlements Approach Guidance Note” in December 2020.
