Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The Danish Refugee Council (DRC), an international non-governmental organization (NGO), has been providing relief and development services in the Horn of Africa since 1997. DRC promotes and supports solutions to the problems faced by refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), and migrants. The organization has offices across the region, and has been operational in Ethiopia since 2009. With funding from bilateral and multilateral donors, DRC is currently implementing a range of activities across Ethiopia and Djibouti, including WASH and shelter provision, child and youth protection, gender based violence response, awareness-raising of migration risks, protection monitoring of migration routes, and livelihoods support for returning migrants or those at-risk of migration.
The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is leading an international consortium to deliver a £21 million program to protect would-be migrants and refugees from unsafe irregular migration through and from Ethiopia Amhara and Tigray regions of Ethiopia as well as Djibouti. The 4-year program, funded by the Department for International Development, UK (DFID, UK), will address the barriers to reducing unsafe irregular migration from Ethiopia and ultimately reducing unsafe regular migration through and from Ethiopia, taking into consideration attention to the most vulnerable group -- women, girls and unaccompanied irregular migrants -- and coordination with key stakeholders. The program is anticipated to be innovative, cross-sectoral and solutions-oriented with strong emphasis on research, learning and adaptive management.
