Crisis prevention & recovery

UNDP supports communities in crisis situations particularly those affected by armed conflict and natural disasters. Our crisis prevention and recovery programmes are aimed at the development and implementation of conflict-sensitive and peace-promoting policies, plans and programmes, implementation of recovery and rehabilitation programmes in disaster/conflict-affected areas, and the strengthening of government-civil society collaboration for peacebuilding.


UNDP assistance in crisis-affected communities contribute to strengthening the capacities of claimholders and dutybearers to promote human rights, inclusivity, integrity, accountability and rule of law in governance, and in developing resilience and adaptive capacities to disasters.more
