DESCRIPTION OF THE MISSION/PROJECT
In view of the dire humanitarian crisis taking place in Tigray, HI Ethiopia, not present in this area, has launched an initial assessment to support the definition of an operational strategy.
This assessment provided many information on the situation, access, opportunities, etc. The main conclusion is that the needs are acute, the response is not sufficient, the donors are positioning themselves, the security situation is manageable following strict protocols and the access – although very restricted – is possible. In this context, HI does have an added value in responding to this humanitarian crisis and should position itself very fast as a stakeholder in this emergency response.
Following this needs assessment, HI designed a global strategic operational framework to address the identified needs with the following pillars:
Pillar 1 : Integrated approach between MHPSS, Protection, IHA and Functional & Physical Rehabilitation, to improve access to services and wellbeing of the conflict affected populations including the most vulnerable and persons with specific needs
Pillar 2: Contribute to improve access and ensure delivery of assistance to the most vulnerable living in Tigray while limiting the use of logistics negative coping mechanisms.
