Tanzania Urban Resilience Program (TURP)

Dar es Salaam is one of the fastest growing cities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Much of the urban growth is unplanned, leading to over-crowding and high pressure on public services and drainage systems. The city is frequently affected by floods, leading to high costs in terms of physical loss, as well as loss of life. Due to climate change, the situation is becoming more urgent as the population is increasingly exposed and vulnerable to frequent floods.

AISHA: Resilient Refugee Women Project

Resilient-Refugee-Women

Contemporary political volatility, protest and civil war within the Middle East region has led to far reaching socio-economic upheaval and strife with a devastating impact generating mass displacement with ensuing poverty for refugees (UNHCR, 2014). Most often, women and children are the worst affected (Al Dajani and Marlow, 2013; Holmes, 2007) as they have limited power and bear the brunt of much of the devastation (Kuttab, 2008; Chatty, 2010). Yet, they are largely absent from forums where solutions to the problems of displacement and poverty are deliberated.
