WP1 - Vulnerability Assessment:

Current work in Niamey centres on a child-centred, gender sensitive approach to explore varied vulnerabilities of boys and girls from conflict-displaced and host communities including economic migrant families. Data collection will be mixed-method and build on Save the Children’s Household Economy Approach (HEA).

 This is a food and water security early warning and vulnerability assessment tool used throughout the Sahel region and with extension to East Africa now being adapted to urban contexts including work in Niamey with UN High Commission for Refugees on water and food security, flooding and conflict stress. 

La résilience urbaine est un produit de la capacité des ménages à absorber le stress, às’adapter et à transformer la marge d’action en gestion du risque.
