Concern Disaster Risk Reduction: Dryland contexts

Source(s):  Concern Worldwide
UCD Centre for Humanitarian Action

This publication is a synthesis of lessons from more than a decade of Concern Worldwide’s disaster risk reduction (DRR) programming in dryland geographic contexts. Based on research in Kenya and Niger, this report describes Concern’s approach to DRR and offers lessons and guidance on how to use DRR to address hazards typically found in dryland areas.

The publication presents lessons learned in the following areas:

  • governance and systems strengthening;
  • service provision;
  • early warning;
  • early action.

The publication is part of a series documenting Concern’s approach to disaster risk reduction. The series consists of five context papers focusing on DRR approaches in mountainous, dryland, coastal, urban, and riverine contexts.
