Crisis prevention & recovery
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 national capacities, allowing for effective disaster preparedness, risk reduction and emergency response. This takes a three-pronged approach: 1) Increasing the capacity of state actors and communities to implement effective risk reduction and response measures; 2) Strengthening the Natural Disaster Management Authority to fully integrate and implement hazard mitigation policies and strategies; and 3) Contributing to the full functionality of national and international partnerships in the area of risk and risk management.more
