Niger et RCA: les acteurs locaux au cœur de la réponse
Heavy rainfall between November 2011 and the first quarter of 2012 resulted in flash floods and landslides in the highlands and widespread flooding in the lowlands of Peru. A state of emergency was called across 18 of Peru’s 24 regions and estimates of affected populations rose as high as 900,000.
In support to the humanitarian response, the Shelter Cluster was activated in Peru in early June in partnership with the UN humanitarian team in Lima. Through its initiative REACH, and in the framework of its partnership with the Global Shelter Cluster, IMPACT rapidly deployed to Peru to conduct an assessment on the impact of the flooding on the shelters in the Loreto region. REACH conducted a rapid shelter assessment and mapping exercise including a sample of approximately 1,300 households. The assessment supported coordination efforts and informed the humanitarian community and national and regional stakeholders on the needs of the affected populations. The assessment was key in providing recommendations for further post-emergency response.

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.
