The Post Cyclone Idai and Kenneth Emergency Recovery and Resilience Programme (PCIREP) is designed in response to the devastation and destruction caused by these phenomena in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. It aims to restore livelihoods, wellbeing and build resilience of the communities in the three affected countries with the emphasis of reaching the furthest behind first. The program proposes solutions to tackle recovery and resilience processes in a medium to long-term perspective through a multi-sectoral and build-back-better approach to infrastructure reconstruction/rehabilitation, restoration of agricultural livelihoods and promotion of resilience to climate shocks, disasters, and extreme weather events. The programme is expected to restore livelihoods and wellbeing of the affected communities and increase access to productive resources through agriculture productivity and resilience and rehabilitation of socioeconomic infrastructure to facilitate integration, connectivity and economic activities in the region. The programme has three components, namely: (i) Enhanced agricultural productivity and resilience, (ii) Sustainable socioeconomic infrastructure and (iii) Institutional strengthening and programme management.
The goal of the programme is to restore and improve sustainable livelihoods of the affected vulnerable groups of the population, enhance disaster risk reduction, early warning preparedness, support inclusive social and economic recovery empowerment, and enhance post recovery adaptive capacity.
It is estimated that about one million people will directly benefit from the programme. The intended interventions will invariably benefit women and youth in building their postdisaster resilience and the programme will specifically target 50% women and 40% young people in the Programme area. Other direct beneficiaries include Governments of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe whose capacities will be strengthened to better integrate response to climate and disaster risks, enhance community resilience and adaptation in order to promote smart agriculture, disaster and climate resilient investments across sectors and at national and community level.
