African communities face complex challenges that require multilayered solutions: ForAfrika

Share

African communities increasingly face a complex set of challenges that require multisector, layered initiatives that support their efforts to reshape their environments, says ForAfrika, the largest African humanitarian development organisation.

The effects of climate change and war have led to unprecedented numbers of internally displaced people, many of whom are to be found in Africa, especially in the north and east where conflict has led to 9.7-million people fleeing their homes, 6-million in Sudan and 3.7-million in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

“Over 40 years of operating as Africa’s largest humanitarian development organisation, we have developed a three-tiered programming framework that helps communities get back on their feet. Repeatedly we have seen it prove its worth,” says Dr Mary Okumu, the organisation’s technical director.
