OUR WORK - CRISIS PREVENTION AND RECOVERY

Globally, UNDP works to restore the quality of life of people who have been devastated by natural disaster or violent conflict. Crisis Prevention and Recovery is an important programmatic focus, as crisis and disaster can create setbacks and curtail progress in the development of a country.

The objective of the UNDP country office Crisis Prevention and Recovery Programme is to assist Belize in the strengthening of its framework for disaster co-ordination as well as of national capacities, allowing for effective disaster preparedness, risk reduction and emergency response.
