In this edition of the newsletter we bring you some of the work Oxfam has been doing around its Resilience and Climate Justice theme. Oxfam's Resilience and Climate Justice Program works to strengthen communities and institu-tions' capacity to cope with disasters, improve their livelihoods, and build resilience. For many decades, people in Nepal have suffered from multi-dimensional poverty, which manifests in the form of unequal distribution of resources, vulnerability to disasters, exclusion and margin-alization. With a particular focus on women's social and economic empowerment, The Resili-ence and Climate Justice programme works to optimize the community's access to finance and develop capacity on Enterprise Development using new technology in the finance sector. The program also works towards climate change ad-aptations, disaster risk reduction, policy influ-ence, humanitarian preparedness, and re-sponse.
