Response and Recovery Preparedness

About the project

This project improves capacities at national and local levels to mitigate the impact of disasters on people’s lives and livelihoods. It assesses recovery needs, and uses space-based information technology to measure the scope and impact of disasters.

Another aspect of the project is setting up an Early Recovery Network/Cluster, which provides real-time assessments of damages, losses, needs and planning for recovery interventions that are more effective and efficient.

The project builds long-term resilience while reducing risk during recovery from natural and man-made disasters. It includes measures to prevent forest fires, to ensure safe building practices, and to improve land development planning. The project strengthens the multi-sectoral coordination capacity of the Department of Disaster Management through improving collection and analysis of disaster-related data.
