Summary

The very severe category 6 tropical cyclone Amphan with above 200 km/hr wind speed made a landfall in Sundarbans & East Midnipur of West Bengal 20 May 2020. It has left behind a trail of damage disrupting the lives, livelihoods and infrastructure of around 1.5 million people from 3 districts in coastal Sundarbans of West Bengal and Odisha in India.

Challenge

Initial assessment reports indicated severe loss of tree plantations, agricultural land like paddy, pulses, etc., with widespread saline water inundation, loss of livestock and unavailability of fodder, loss to equipment used by fishermen, and a damage to shelter and property. All these damages will take several years to come back to normalcy.

Solution

This project aims to provide shelter support and solar lanterns to 500 cyclone affected families across five development blocks - Gop, Puri Sadar, Nimapara, Brahmagiri, Pipli - of Odisha and two blocks - Sagar and Namkhana - in West Bengal states of India. The families will have a basic necessity fulfilled, i.e. a safe shelter and have an energy efficient means of lighting.

Long-Term Impact

The project will sensitise families to use energy efficient off-grid models and practices. The project will also mobilise resources from other sources for providing food security for the families through kitchen gardening. This will enhance their access to nutritious and self-sustaining food sources, thereby improving their health and well-being.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
