Strength in numbers: 14 years of building resilience in Central Asia


This video looks back at the achievements of the DipECHO program, which has contributed to making Central Asia a safer place to live in. After 14 years and an investment of around €46 Million, over 100 projects have been funded across the region under this initiative, directly impacting the lives of communities living in some of the most remote regions of the planet.

With its diverse geography, the region of Central Asia is particularly prone to natural disasters. Earthquakes, landslides, floods, droughts and extreme temperatures occur frequently, impacting people's daily lives. In the past three decades natural disasters have affected almost 4 million people and caused an annual average loss of €250 M throughout the region. In order to support the population and the governments of Central Asia in their desire to prevent and mitigate the consequences of these phenomena, the European Commission launched its disaster prevention programme (DIPECHO) back in 2003.
