ADRA Myanmar responds to humanitarian needs of people in Myanmar by coordinating with UN-OCHA, UNHCR, WFP, UNICEF, the Ministry of Social Welfare and Relief and Resettlement on emergency assessment and response to escalations of conflict and incidence of flooding, landslides, earthquakes, cyclones and other natural disasters. The ADRA National Emergency Management Plan (NEMP) enables rapid mobilization of teams and resources to respond to humanitarian needs and gaps. ADRA provides cash assistance where local markets are functional, assisting vulnerable persons with unconditional cash grants, providing multi-purpose grants to households and coordinating cash for work programs to enable rehabilitation of community infrastructure and access to income earning opportunities. ADRA Myanmar constructs and repairs water and sanitation facilities post disaster and for displaced communities and supports communities in recovery of their livelihoods through emergency food security and livelihoods (EFSL) activities.
New Ways of Working (NWoW): ADRA Myanmar strengthens the humanitarian-development-peace nexus in protracted settings in Myanmar by aligning development and humanitarian programming to improve education, health and livelihoods. These programs reduce risks and increase resilience of communities to cope with conflict, climate change and natural disasters while enhancing inclusion and participation in national transformation processes and economic growth.
