Decentralisation of Disaster Risk Management in Ethiopia

This programme aims to strengthen households, communities and local authorities to manage and adapt to disasters and other risks, thus reducing their vulnerability, humanitarian and economic impact, as well as irregular migration and forced displacement

Main objectives

The specific objective is to enhance the capacities of the local authorities to proactively and rapidly help communities cope and be protected in the event of conflict and climatic stress. With this project, people affected by shocks, in particular women and youth, including host and displaced communities are expected to have increased access to diversified economic opportunities. The capacities of regional and local (woreda) administrations will be strengthened to improve disaster risk management and as a result of the project, effective Disaster Risk Reduction regional Contingency Funds (DRR-CF) should be in place to reinforce preparedness and early response
