Analysis of Red Cross/Red Crescent Vulnerability and Capacity Assessments for African Cities

Between late 2013 and early 2014 the IFRC supported several African National Societies to conduct Vulnerability and Capacity Assessments (VCA) in urban communities. VCA reports were prepared for:

  1. Yaounde VI Subdivision, Yaounde, Cameroon, 
  2. Arada Sub-city (Woreda 4 and Woreda 5), Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  3. Tomber Mort and Akekoi, Abidjan, Ivory Coast
  4. Lunga Lunga Informal Settlements, Nairobi, Kenya
  5. Commune de Guinaw Rails Nord, Dakar, Senegal
  6. Rufisque, Dakar, Senegal
  7. Hananasifu and Kigogo Mkwajuni Communities/Streets, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
  8. Dzivarasekwa and Hatcliffe, Harare North District, Harare, Zimbabwe

This report discusses these 8 VCA reports as a body, emphasizing their strengths and suggesting strategies for further strengthening the VCA approach for urban engagement.
