The Global Resilience Partnership is exploring, prototyping and scaling innovative resilience solutions, experimenting on the edge of the possible, pioneering deals, convening and encouraging collaboration between new partners and traditional agencies – to provide mass to achieve impact at scale. The organisation plans to help millions of vulnerable people in the Sahel, the Horn of Africa and South East Asia better adapt to shocks and chronic stresses and thrive in a more resilient future.
Rockefeller Foundation, USAID, and Sida are the founding sponsors, collectively investing to increase global resilience and mobilize regional collaborations.
African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) will empower local communities and vulnerable agriculturists across Uganda with an innovative early warning weather system for severe weather across the drought prone Cattle Corridor, the accident prone areas of Lake Victoria, Kyoga, and Wamala, and Uganda’s flash flood prone highlands. Leveraging the prevalence of cell phones across the country, the team will partner with mobile operators and the Ugandan National Meteorological Authority to provide low cost, on-demand access to weather alerts to more than 16 million Ugandan cell phone users and free access to all 8 million Airtel subscribers.
