Building a sustainable future: protecting communities

Source(s):  Australian Agency for International Development (AusAid)

This paper features Australian investment in disaster risk reduction, which helps partner countries save lives, reduce the costs of responding to disasters, protect their economies, and safeguard critical infrastructure. It highlights three good practices: (i) in Indonesia with a pilot programme involving risk assessment and mapping of areas most at risk to prepare for potential disasters; (ii) in the Horn of Africa, where Australia supports the most vulnerable people affected by the crisis; and (iii) through the Australian Civilian Corps (ACC) initiative to enable the deployment of civilian specialists to countries experiencing or emerging from natural disaster or conflict as a bridge to long term development programmes in Papua New Guinea, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Afghanistan and Haiti.
