Maintaining Essential Services After Natural Disasters (MAINTAINS
MAINTAINS (Maintaining Essential Services After Natural Disasters)
MAINTAINS is focused on covariate shocks (those that affect a large proportion of the population simultaneously). These include shocks from natural hazards such as drought, cyclone, flooding, landslides, earthquakes etc. as well as health-related shocks such as disease outbreaks, epidemics and pandemics. The intended impact of the project is to enable the countries to effectively manage their risk, with essential services able to respond more quickly, more reliably, and at lower cost after a shock.
This is to result in new knowledge and evidence on shock responsive essential services leading to development of, and investment in, more effective development policies and programmes, by DFID, other donors and partners.
