We are confronted with humanitarian crises worldwide. There is an urgent need to continue and expand our emergency response and early recovery program in West and Central Africa and the Middle East. We continue our disaster recovery operations in Haiti and the Philippines.
As a member of the Partners for Resilience alliance we will develop and implement a Strategic Partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs for selected countries in Central America, Africa and Asia from 2016 to 2020. The Strategic Partnership focus is on Lobby and Advocacy for integrating DRR, climate change adaptation and ecosystem management in international, national and community level programmes and policies.
