Disaster Reduction Goal
The Nigeria DRR/CA is conducted with a clear focus on national and state capacities for DRR using the indicators set for the implementation of the HFA. The DRR/CA looked into five technical areas of capacity development: (i) ownership, (ii) institutional arrangements, (iii) competencies, (iv) working tools and resources, and (v) relationships/coordination. For the HFA Priority 1, the Capacity Assessment (CA) focuses on the level of national and State ownership as a basis for creating the enabling environment for DRR, in order to guarantee the sustainability of the capacity development process.
