The Human and Environment Development Organization (HEDO) is an NGO based in Sri Lanka that focuses on minimizing CO2 emissions which are produced during conventional rubber production process. In particular, HEDO established five energy efficient rubber drying houses fueled by waste sawdust. The new procedure drastically reduced the vast amount of greenhouse gases emitted in the transformation process and enabled the smallholders to produce a high-quality rubber sheet, resulting in extra income. The project also utilized rubber wastewater as a source of bio-gas, converting this environmental hazard into profit.

When Category 5 tropical cyclone Winston struck Fiji in February 2016, almost 62 percent of the population was affected with losses estimated around 31 percent of national GDP. <br />
<br />
The geographic location and structure of the Fiji islands and other South Pacific countries makes emergency response more complicated than in other isolated countries. Traditional logistics-based humanitarian responses with in-kind support to affected people, are not always the most effective solutions. Linking national social protection systems with emergency humanitarian assistance and using different transfer modalities, including cash and voucher, can be an effective way to ensure relief to families in need. <br />
<br />
The Fiji Government’s response to tropical cyclone Winston helped to bridge the historical divide between externally-led emergency responses and nationally-led long-term development programmes. <br />
<br />
Fiji’s lessons learned on emergency response serves as an inspiration for other countries in the region and will be shared with the wider Pacific community, through a Pacific Regional Social Protection and Emergency Response Workshop. WFP has expressed willingness to facilitate such an initiative, also in view of supporting Fiji and other governments in the Pacific community through South-South learning on emergency preparedness and response. <br />
