Disaster risk management for communities - ACF policy document

Source(s):  Action Against Hunger International (ACF International)

This policy outlines the current and likely future dynamics of disaster risk, the commitment of ACF for Disaster Risk Management in communities and how to make this practice sustainable within ACF via an institutional strategy.

The policy challenges ACF to extend its humanitarian mandate towards resilience and to put in place the enabling environment for successful development.

Increasing numbers of people suffer from the effects of disaster and undernutrition and their causes are increasingly linked. Other man-made threats and global processes, such as climate change amplify these effects.

In French:

Ce document stratégique souligne les dynamiques actuelles et futures dues aux risques liés aux désastres, l'engagement d'ACF dans la gestion des risques liés aux désastres au sein des communautés et comment rendre cette pratique durable au sein du réseau ACF par le biais d'une stratégie institutionnelle.

Ce document représente une évolution dans le mandat humanitaire d'ACF vers la résilience et pour mettre en place l'environnement permettant pour le développement réussi.

Les nombres croissants de personne souffrant des effets des désastres et de la sous-nutrition, ainsi que leurs causes, sont de plus en plus liés. D'autres facteurs globaux et menaces associées aux activités humaines comme le changement climatique, ne font qu'amplifier les effets néfastes sur la population.
