Partners for Resilience: Haiti

Project information

People world-wide live in disaster-prone areas. Disasters damage the eco-systems they live in and upon which their livelihoods depend. Their vulnerability to disasters is aggrevated by climate change, which increases the frequency, scale and inpredictability of disasters. Eco-systems, if protected and managed well, can play an important role in mitigating the impact of disasters (holding more excess water, sheltering form storms).
The Strategic Partnership of Partners for Resilience (PfR) is aimed at promoting and improving (attention for) Integrated Risk Management (IRM) in policies, investments and practices of key stakeholders. The ultimate aim is to improve resilience of vulnerable communities who are confronted with disaster risks though better laws and regulations, IRM-proof investments (including screening), and enhanced practices that take better account of their potential to reduce risks. This project focuses on improving resilience in communities in Haiti.

      Actions relate to different actors. Four groups are distinguished: Communities, Civil Society organisations (Red Cross, plus PfR partners, other CSOs, organised communities), Government (at various levels), and the private sector. Beneficiaries of the programme are vulnerable communities in disaster-prone conditions.
