Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries and Communities programme brochure

Disasters in Sub-Saharan Africa often take a huge toll on vulnerable populations. Loss of life and livelihoods in the face of already existing challenges sets communities back many years leaving them at risk should another natural hazard occur.

To support disaster risk management in Sub-Saharan Africa, the European Union (EU) and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) signed an agreement in 2013 to help strengthen ACP Member States’ regional integration and inclusion in the global economy, to address climate change as well as agriculture and rural development. The agreement also aims to contribute to better governance and education.

This document serves to break down the expected results under the programme and elucidates the role of each partner in the implementation of the programme.
