Bridging the divide
Lessons from disaster risk reduction, development and humanitarian approaches to Cyclones Idai and Kenneth
This brief presents lessons drawn from a Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (ZFRA) Post Event Review Capability (PERC) study of the 2019 Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth impacts in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi. Based on over 100 key informant interviews and background research, the study identifies opportunities to strengthen humanitarian and development approaches to dealing with increasingly dangerous natural hazards.
