Getting Beyond Zero - Early Recovery and Resilience Support Framework: Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone
The findings from the UNDP-led multi-stakeholder Ebola recovery assessment 'Recovering from the Ebola Crisis', the Mano River Union Ebola Recovery Strategy and the three country-specific Ebola Recovery Strategies have informed UNDP’s new focus and approach to the goal of ‘Stop and Treat’ and the imperative for sustainable recovery. These goals are the foundations for meeting immediate post-Ebola recovery needs and beyond.
UNDP's Early Recovery and Resilience Support Framework – Getting Beyond Zero - focuses on the following key areas in the next 6-18 months:
i) Economic opportunities, jobs, livelihoods improvement of the most affected population in particular youth and women in the three epicentre countries;
ii) Recovery of the health sector;
iii) Resilient governance, peace, security, rule of law and justice;
iv) Risk management of future Ebola outbreaks.
Ongoing support continues on i) Essential services; and ii) Community engagement. UNDP will also support the government and UN system in coordinating the recovery process at country and regional levels, including support to the Mano River Union.
Clearly we believe that while focusing on Stop and Treat, the focus on recovery from the Ebola crisis should begin now.
Our support framework for the three Governments of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone’s Ebola Socio-economic Recovery Strategies as well as that of the Mano River Union focuses on Stop and Treat whilst scaling up early recovery and resilience.
