Climate Change, Disaster Preparedness, Management and Rehabilitation Program

Climate change and natural disasters are of global concern, and they pose serious threats to developing countries in particular. The Climate Change, Disaster Preparedness, Management and Rehabilitation program (CCDPMR) enhances HHF’s institutional capacity to respond to natural disasters. It builds competence at the community level on disaster preparedness, and increases coping abilities with preventive and adaptive strategies. We provide training and early warning information to both our staff and the community and share research findings. When disaster strikes our emergency relief and rehabilitation support help communities to restore their lives. We respond to man-made and environmental disasters through different interventions. Through these combined measures we aim to sustainably reduce the vulnerability of exposed populations.
