Oxfam Southern Africa Climate Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction
SEI was commissioned by Oxfam Great Britain’s Southern Africa Regional Centre to advise on climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction (DRR).
SEI’s work is informing Oxfam's regional strategy for mainstreaming climate considerations into their programming for poverty reduction. We reviewed the climate science for the region, focusing on Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia.
SEI also worked at the local level to understand perceptions of risk and existing responses to climate stressors through a gender lens, and mapped the institutional landscape at the national level to identify government, donor and NGO activities on climate change and disaster risk reduction, with a view to Oxfam’s engagement.
