Emergency Humanitarian Response Zambia

Emergency humanitarian support for food security, livelihoods and water in drought affected areas of Zambia.

Please note – initial funding has now been provisionally allocated so DFID Zambia is not able to consider further proposals at this time.

Overview

Zambia is currently experiencing a drought affecting in excess of 1.7 million people. DFID Zambia is open to receiving proposals from NGOs with capacity to deliver emergency drought response activities in the worst affected districts in the sectors of food security, livelihoods and water. As the UK is already working with UNICEF in selected districts to set up emergency cash transfers and support for treatment of acute malnutrition, additional proposals for these activities are not sought at this time.

What the fund will achieve

Emergency humanitarian assistance on food security, livelihoods and water in drought affected areas of Zambia.

How to apply

NGOs wishing to submit a proposal should send this to B-Sitwala@dfid.gov.uk

Guidance and templates are available on our Humanitarian Response Funding Guidelines for NGOs page.

Background information on the fund

Due to the nature of the emergency DFID Zambia will review proposals as they are received.
