Programme Description:

Mozambique is prone to various natural disasters such as drought, floods, cyclones, pests, various epidemics, earthquakes and major transport and industrial accidents.  As a signatory to the “Hyogo Framework” the Government is committed to implementing a natural disaster risk reduction agenda, as illustrated through the Master Plan for Prevention and Mitigation of Natural Calamities.  This ten-year master plan defines strategic lines for disaster risk reduction in Mozambique, reflecting the disaster risk reduction priorities of the PARPA II.  The Joint Programme for Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) aims to support these national efforts in collaboration with civil society partners in the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT).
