Film: National Platforms for Disaster Reduction: the experience of Madagascar

Madagascar is a land of extremes: extreme beauty, extreme biodiversity, but also extreme poverty and above all extreme weather. Every year the population is subjected to a series of cyclones, and in the south of the country, there are long and frequent periods of drought. Despite the destructive force of these storms, the people of Madagascar suffered fewer losses in 2007 due to prevention measures spearheaded by the Government and the National Platform on Disaster Reduction.

National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction work to reduce the impact of natural hazards and better prepare populations against disasters. The film describes how the Madagascar's National platform works and its main roles before, during and after disasters.
