Against the backdrop of these integrated areas of our work..
Advocating for and Supporting Evolution of School…
We actively help before, during & after emergencies & disasters, mainstream gender, consider climate action in our programming and undertake relevant research, towards the large scale impact we want:
Emergency management (readiness-response-peace & stability):
Parallel to doing our development work, we contribute to mitigating the risk of crisis, and ensure that (when they unfortunately occur) people affected have what they need to survive; including protection, food, water, shelter, and basic household items, without resorting to desperate measures. We do this by providing needed assistance and especially unconditional cash assistance – where appropriate so that people can buy what they need themselves, which benefits the local economy and support them with reconstructing their communities and livelihoods in the aftermath – and then engage in initiatives to improve trust between & within communities and reduce risk of violence.
Gender & Climate Action Mainstreaming across our programming:
We understand the critical importance of humanitarian action & sustainable development of gender and climate action. That is why we mainstream these in all the work we do. Our gender task force works with their program advisor & program associate colleagues to help mainstream gender across our programming – there is a gender and intersectionality lens to every project we design.
Also, we understand that the intricate linkage between man’s well-being and his environment cannot be over-emphasized, and failure to take care of this environment & nature will put man’s long-term survival at risk. Already, in poor communities with unimproved infrastructures and limited access to health care, we are witnessing crop failures, increasing food prices heightening the problem of food insecurity and nutritional deprivations – largely as a result of droughts and changing global rainfall patterns across the African continent as a whole; What’s more, uncontrolled littering, inappropriate and inadequate waste collection, and treatment, as well as the desire to achieve economic objectives of development through the exploitation of natural resources and development of infrastructures all happen at the expense of people’s well being and nature. Thus, the strategy around Deviin’s mainstreaming of environmental care/protection entails A climate action advocacy and integration into our relevant project designs (as it relates to sustainable development).
