Mozambique: disaster risk management along the Rio Búzi

Case study on the background, concept and implementation of disaster risk
management in the context of the GTZ-Programme for rural development (PRODER):

The main goal of this case study is to present and systematise experience with the disaster risk management (DRM) activities that have so far taken place within the framework of (Programa para o Desenvolvimento Rural – PRODER), with the aim of making recommendations for the further expansion of DRM activities in Mozambique.

Firstly this study presents and illustrates in concrete terms the concept of disaster risk, which comprises the two components of ‘hazard’ and ‘vulnerability’, given the specific context of the local physical-geographical and socio-economic conditions of the project region. The necessity for preventive measures derives from the level of risk: sustainable development in disaster-prone areas is only possible in combination with an effective and tailored DRM component.

In a second step, the reasons for and the goals of the integration of DRM into PRODER will be presented, drawing attention to the advantages for the endangered population on the one hand, and for the decentralisation process on the other.
