ADRA Madagascar intensifies its emergency responses

Madagascar is increasingly vulnerable to natural disasters and impacts of climate change, mainly drought in the South, and cyclone and floodings in the highlands, the eastern, southeastern, and western coasts. Driven by its mission to serve humanity, ADRA Madagascar is reinforcing its emergency responses to provide life-saving assistance to disaster victims and to support early recovery. 

ADRA has the capacity to respond within a few days after the disaster strikes thanks to its National Emergency Management Plan. In addition, ADRA partners with several donors to implement larger scale emergency and recovery projects. 

From 2019 to 2022, 15.50% of ADRA budget was allocated to humanitarian responses and 80% to development projects. Among emergency funds, 80.4% were for drought response in the South, 17.7% for cyclone response and the rest for COVID-19 response in the capital city.

Between 2021 and 2022, ADRA managed food, cash, and agricultural emergency assistance and WASH response funded respectively by BHA, MCB Bank, INVISO Group, ADRA Germany, WFP, ADRA Netherlands, and UNICEF. ADRA emergency response portfolio increased from 3 to 12 projects during that period.

In May 2023, ADRA runs two emergency projects funded by BHA – AINA project in the South and ARISE II in the Southeast – and a post-cyclone response funded by WFP in the Southeast. In the South, an agricultural recovery project funded by ADRA Netherlands is also carried out in Ampanihy District.
