Building disaster resilience for mountain communities

13 Apr 2016, OCHA ROCCA

To prepare people for disasters, a number of community emergency response teams were set up in a mountainous Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast province in Tajikistan, with volunteers trained to provide first aid, evacuate people, conduct search-and-rescue operations, communicate with first responders and authorities, mobilize resources, trigger alert systems, and arrange other life-saving activities before external aid arrives.
