Ensuring coordinated disaster response

The re-location of displaced people from community collective centres (particularly schools) is underway with 56 families being moved to serviced camp sites in Chimanimani. For the long term the private sector is well advanced with planning for new-house builds and homestead repairs for those displaced in Chimanimani: Detailed assessments planned in May will inform the number of beneficiaries for permanent shelter – priority will be given to orphans, female headed households, and the elderly. Private sector is being embedded in the shelter cluster to ensure a coordinated response. Funding being made available by the private sector is sufficient to cover about 27,500 people, i.e. most of the affected households in the district. Meanwhile the World Bank has announced its intention to provide up to $75M for the cyclone-response with emphasis on early recovery. This multi-sectoral funding is being routed through UN agencies and is intended to support all cyclone-affected districts. Implementation will commence late 2019 and will have a timeframe of 2-3 years. Read more in the attachment below
