2016 in Review - Framework for Evidence-based Resilience Building Developed

May 17, 2017

The Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund (ZRBF) was set up and launched in 2016 as a framework for catalysing evidence-based resilience building in Zimbabwe.

The facility is established with support from the European Union, DFID (UK Department for International Development) and UNDP. A contribution of the Fund this far has been the production of 36 multi-hazard maps and six analytical

products generated to inform the broader national resilience programming in Zimbabwe. In addition, the ZRBF launched

three projects with a total of US$11,980,438 on 1st July 2016 with disbursements to be distributed in over 36 months targeting 86,594 households in 9 vulnerable districts. It is envisaged that ZRBF evidencebased programming will enhance the capacities of vulnerable households to better anticipate, prevent, respond to or bounce back when exposed to shocks.
