CERF Droughts South of Angola - 7th sitrep as of 15 October 2016

UN agencies and NGOs are working closely with the Government of Angola to address the situation. Four life-saving projects funded by the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) are supporting 585.000 people since February up to November 2016. Beside this, UN agencies have implemented other emergency response project. Multiple national and international NGOs and the Red Cross have developed multi-sectoral emergency programmes to respond to rural community needs in the three most-affected provinces.

In the framework established by the National Plan for Preparation, Contingency Response, and Recovery (PNPCR) 2015-2017, from July to September 2016, the UN continued its emergency support in the drought-affected Cunene, Huila and Namibe.

Immediate response and resilient recovery projects are integrating the humanitarian response with livelihood support and income generation, also in view of the upcoming effects of La Niña, expected in the last quarter of the year.
