4  Emergencies can happen anywhere, any time  It doesn’t matter how developed a country is, or wealthy or prepared.   Impact on communities  Disruption of community and state protection mechanisms  Disruption/loss of access to basic services  Increase in vulnerability (girls pushed into early marriage, sons sent to work…)

5  Yet, there is recognition that the impact of crisis can be mitigated, prevented and prepared for  Building resilience  The heart of development cooperation’s efforts in humanitarian and development contexts.  Development programs need to tackle the root causes of recurrent crisis rather than just their consequences in order to ensure development gains are genuinely sustainable.  Working with vulnerable populations to build their resilience is also a fundamental part of poverty reduction –the ultimate goal of EU development policy

6 Resilience: The ability of an individual, a household, a community, a country or a region to withstand, adapt and quickly recover from stresses and shocks such as drought, violence, conflict or natural disaster. Alleviating underlying causesEnhancing capacities

7   High vulnerability/low national capacity to prevent and manage shocks  Localized support to service delivery, explicit capacity development strategies targeting the roots of fragility through humanitarian and development interventions   High vulnerability/limited, but growing, national capacity  Strengthening systems while filling critical gaps, gradually transferring leadership to national institutions   High vulnerability/high national systems capacity  Advocacy, disaster risk reduction, and policy advice   Challenged governance/civil unrest & previously strong national systems suffer a challenges  Particularly challenging in regards to promoting child rights

8  Multiple overlapping contexts  One agency may therefore be required to take several different approaches to working in the same country  Institutional silos  Differing timelines for response, priorities, resource allocation, staffing expertise and institutional mandates  Duty bearers as violators  In armed conflict, often intentionally perpetrate gross violations of child rights as a part of deliberate plan  Diminished national capacity  Crises can result in destruction of assets and create demands that cannot be met with existing capacities

9  Anticipate crises by assessing risks  Which significant hazards and threats pose the biggest risk to children and women? Where will these hazards happen? Who are the most vulnerable and therefore the most affected?   Build national capacities for preparedness and response  Whose and what capacities need to be built?   Invest in early warning systems  The process of providing timely information through systematic information gathering and risks analysis about potential emergencies

10 1. 1. Support national capacities for disaster risk reduction (DRR)  Checklist on integration of child rights concerns into DRR programming Support participation of children in local planning, risk assessments, and monitoring  Supporting their positive engagement is an important aspect in fostering more inclusive societies  There are many concrete ways in which they can contribute

11 3. Ensure integrated program approaches and strategies  Work differently and more effectively together  More flexible policies and funding mechanisms  More effective coordination and sequencing between humanitarian and development work 4. Engage in joint needs assessments  2011 EU methodology for JHDF for transition situations
