The project was conceptualized to support the establishment of policy and regulatory frameworks, build the capacity of national and district level authorities to improve DRM, with the objective of reducing future hazard impacts and ensuring effective humanitarian response. Fundamental to this project is the mainstreaming of DRR in government policies, programmes and training to ensure risk-informed development.
