Conflict Response and Recovery, UNICEF Chattisgarh, India- From 2006 to 2012 RedR India worked in Dantewada region of Chattisgarh in partnership with UNICEF India. During the course of 6 years, RedR India supported UNICEF’s interventions on public health, nutrition, education and protection.The work of RedR India initially involved implementation support through deployments for Public Health Engineering, Public Health Promotion, Project Management and Programme Design. This was often complemented with capacity building interventions with local actors and set up of essential services and facilities in temporary camps. In 2010, RedR India carried out a security and safety review through an integrated assessment of the impact of the socio-political environment and actors on programme service delivery. Later that year, RedR India was engaged in a medium term assignment for building Hygiene Promotion capacities among WASH volunteers in Dantewada to enhance access of WASH services and communication outreach. The capacity building process importantly involved the development of IEC (Information, Education, Communication) material in the local dialects with contextual visuals resulting in a kit that was therefore widely accepted and applied by all stakeholders engaged in public health service delivery. This was also complemented with capacity building and outreach for improved water supply with the Public Health Engineering Department. As a phase out mechanism, RedR India deployed a monitoring and evaluation specialist to work with the local partners to develop, apply and sustain a MIS system through remote management and building of local capacities and resources.
