Cyclone Pam one year on report

Sunday 13 March 2016 will mark one year since Tropical Cyclone Pam struck Vanuatu causing widespread destruction across the eastern and southeastern islands of the country. In the 12 months since the event, more than 50 organisations, both local and international, have worked together under the lead of the Vanuatu Government to ensure relief efforts are coordinated and aid is getting to those who need it most. 
Humanitarian activities have now moved from the response phase into the recovery phase, and Oxfam’s programming has reflected this shift in focus, as well as the impact of El Niño: the country is also experiencing its worst drought in 20 years. Oxfam has integrated its El Niño response plan into the Tropical Cyclone Pam recovery program, particularly in relation to water, sanitation and hygiene, livelihoods recovery, and gender and protection.
