Reducing underlying risk factors (HFA 4)
The National/provincial/municipal disaster management centres, sector departments and government entities, NGOs and academic institutions continually embark on disaster risk reduction training, education advocacy and awareness programmes to educate communities and all stakeholders about the promotion of risk avoidance behaviours.
All disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation projects are monitored regularly to ensure their successful implementation. Project monitoring visits & evaluation meetings are held to take stock of progress with projects. This facilitates the build-back-better principle and the construction of specific hazard resilient infrastructure
The design of reconstruction and rehabilitation projects is approved by the affected municipalities and sectors to ensure that they meet technical and other related standards.
