About the Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund
The Zimbabwe Resilience Building Fund (ZRBF) is a multi-donor program managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and co-funded by the European Union (EU), the Embassy of Sweden and the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The lead implementing partner of ZRBF is the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement (MLAWCRR).
ZRBF seeks to improve the resilience of about 830,000 people through the generation and use of evidence to inform programming and policy; project building capacities to absorb (or withstand), adapt to, and transform livelihoods and systems to reduce risks at the individual, household, community, ward, district and province levels and a risk financing mechanism (“crisis modifier”) that enables early action in response to early warning of crises in order to protect the development gains of the program. Seven ZRBF consortium partners operate in 18 districts of Zimbabwe to build the resilience of individuals, households, communities and systems.
About the Resilience Knowledge Hub (RKH)
In dynamic and risk-prone contexts like Zimbabwe, it has never been more critical to nurture a vibrant network of actors across sectors and scales to articulate, synthesize and catalyse a shared understanding of resilience. The RKH supports ZRBF consortia and government partners in surfacing evidence and generating knowledge to build a repository of actionable learning and capacity building opportunities focused on what matters and works for building resilience in Zimbabwe. Expanding this evidence base is critical to developing longer-term, cost-effective strategies for and national and local capacity around resilience building that reduces dependency on humanitarian aid and secures and sustains progress toward wellbeing outcomes for all. Mercy Corps leads the RKH and partners with the Institute of Environmental Studies (IES) and Technical Assistance to NGOs International (TANGO).
