Resilience through CMDRR, Climate Adaptation and Entrepreneurship 2013-2014 Vulnerable communities in 5 areas of Karonga District, northern Malawi will be trained and will work on Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction, including climate change adaptation and entrepreneurship activities. Thus communities build their resilience to disasters. The 2013/2014 programme is developed based on achievements made in the past two years and on staff trainings that ARCOD attended.

The overall objective of the program is to increase community disaster resilience in the 5 areas (T/A’s) Kyungu, Mwakawoko, Mwansambo, Kilupula and Mwilang’ombe in Karonga District, northern Malawi, by end of 2014. The specific objectives relate to flood risk reduction (river bank protection) ; drought risk reduction (drought resistant crops, irrigation) ; entrepreneurship (farmers’ cooperatives, village savings and loans) ; integration of DRR in community development plans ; capacity building and knowledge management ; and mitigation of climate change impact (natural resource management).
