Background and Objective for Project

Myanmar is undergoing profound transformation after more than fifty years of military rule and internal conflict. The level of humanitarian need in Myanmar will likely remain high and the drivers of crisis will continue to be complex and multi-faceted.

Vulnerability to both periodic and rapid onset natural disaster is high.

The HARP Facility (HARP-F) funds and oversees the delivery of FCDO supported humanitarian assistance to crisis-affected people in Myanmar, as well as Myanmar refugees living in border areas of Thailand. It also enhances the resilience of crisis-affected communities and builds the country’s capacity to respond to future humanitarian need through disaster risk reduction (DRR) programming.

The new Knowledge, Communication and Impact (KCI) Team aims to build the evidence base to demonstrate the impact and value of HARP-F and to strengthen HARP-F role as a key source of information, and a knowledge broker on humanitarian context and programming in a protracted crisis.
