Rural development and food security

Expertise Triangle génération humanitaire

The “Rural Development and Food Security” unit aims to help victims of humanitarian crises or difficult economic situations recover their food security. To understand the diversity and complexity the functioning of societies in which we operate, the unit relies on a systematic and multi-disciplinary approach. It accentuates the characteristics and constraints of various ecosystems, on socio-economic organisation, on change dynamics and on interactions between different elements, at different levels of analysis. This approach emphasises local strategies and knowledge in production systems, in household economic organisation and in the socio-economic and cultural organisation of society. Dialogue and direct consultation with communities and involvement of local actors are the principles which define and direct our action, and which thus guarantee the relevance of our projects.

Water, hygiene and sanitation

Expertise Triangle génération humanitaire

Triangle Génération Humanitaire has acquired technical experience in the water, hygiene and sanitation sector through in the field interventions over several years. The nature of these interventions has varied according to the level of response required (emergencies, rehabilitation, development and food security). It is also able to respond effectively to local needs by setting up infrastructure that is adapted to the needs of vulnerable groups who have limited or no access to water or sanitation.
Improvement of living conditions projects related to water are supervised directly by the water, hygiene and sanitation technical unit, which values and guarantees the positive impact of projects implemented while taken into account the balance between resources, environment and population.

Access to drinking water

  • Construction and / or rehabilitation of wells, drilling and harnessing
  • Protection of resource from contamination
  • Installation of water pumping by manually or mechanically (electric, solar…etc.) operated pumps
  • Creation / rehabilitation of water supply networks  (gravity-fed systems, simplified in rural areas, urban networks)
  • Installation of treatment systems (filtering, decantation, chlorination…etc.) to ensure drinking water quality
  • Creation / consolidation of community water management systems (support for financial, technical and organisational empowerment)
  • Technical and water management training
  • Provision of drinking water in emergency situations (tank trucks, distribution ramps)

Sanitation

  • Construction and / or repair of domestic and public latrines
  • Waste recycling (composting, eco-sanitation, biogas… etc)
  • Renovation of waste water drainage networks
  • Management and recycling of domestic waste
  • Fight against vectors of water-related diseases (mosquitoes, flies, rodents…) and malaria prevention
  • Implementation of CLTS1 (ATPC) methodology

Hygiene promotion

  • Participative Approach (PHAST methodology2, KAP3 surveys, PRA4...)
  • Trainer training
  • Population awareness sessions
  • Communication materials (posters, banners, booklets, radio spots…)

Social-educational and psychosocial

Expertise Triangle génération humanitaire

Educational, social and / or psychosocial programmes have been part of Triangle Génération Humanitaire’s activities since its creation. Its aid workers are in fact convinced that beyond material relief brought to populations in need, another level of action is required. In the regions where we operate, children, adolescents and their families need to be supported in dealing with the disruption in their lives, the trauma they have just been through, their extreme refugee situation, displaced people, “returnees”, or their precarious living conditions. These programmes are systematically carried out with local human resources, and in partnership with the community, which, through its involvement, rebuilds and regains its identity.

Educational support

  • Educational support for special needs children and adolescents, orphans, abandoned children, unsupported or suffering from war-related trauma, in exile, natural catastrophes etc.
  • Educational activities based on multi-faceted games, different learning, including activities facilitating expression of difficulties, capacity development.

Taking popular social and psychological difficulties into account

  • Presence, listening, dialogue, after traumatic events
  • Search for tangible ways to restore social bonds and handle conflict
  • Support for elaboration of community projects
  • Assistance in caring for people in serious difficulty or particularly vulnerable groups in beneficiary communities
  • Social assistance in refugee camps

Guidance in management or in creation of educational and/or social structures

  • Preliminary surveys, creation and activation of association or governmental structures
  • Soup kitchens
  • Centres for disabled
  • Youth resource centres
  • Elementary schools in refugee camps
  • Reception facilities for at risk underage: street children, abused children, unaccompanied children, orphans, in relation to justice…
  • Reception facilities for women victims of violence

Elaboration of training mechanisms

  • Training of various types of personnel (facilitators, educators, heads, administrators, teachers…) in their educational and/or social functions: basic training, management training, refresher courses
    Vocational training of youth: hotel management, catering etc.
  • Professional training and workshops (informal training): catering, hotel management, cooking, sewing, embroidery, electricity, mechanics, woodwork, computers etc.

Civil engineering and construction

Expertise Triangle génération humanitaire

Civil engineering and construction are components, which essentially join with project actions linked to other sectors developed in Triangle Génération Humanitaire’s technical division. Reservoirs, cesspools, drainage channels, or latrine blocks will be produced in accordance with the water access sector, hygiene and sanitation. The rural development and food security sector will see the construction of livestock or storage or processing buildings, or renovation of bridges, roads, and irrigation work, or reduction of risks related to natural catastrophes. Finally, in the socio-educational and psychosocial areas, the construction of professional training, provision or teaching centres are the main construction-related activities.

  • Reprofiling, drainage and road and track maintenance,
  • Repair and maintenance of bridges and jetties,
  • Waste management and recycling; incinerators, drainage channels, cesspools and waste water treatment,
  • And in gabions, dykes, drainage channels,
  • Prevention and reduction of catastrophe-related risks (DRR): dykes, flood re-fitting
  • Construction of storage reservoirs: reinforced concrete, masonry, ferrocement
