Crisis prevention & recovery


The portfolio of Crisis Prevention and Recovery within UNDP Tajikistan includes two major directions of work: disaster risk management and mine action. Since 2003, UNDP’s Disaster Risk Management Programme has been supporting the Government of Tajikistan in reducing the impact of natural disasters on vulnerable communities by strengthening national capacity to reduce risks, prevent, coordinate, respond and recover from disasters.

UNDP/TMAC provides leadership in management, coordination, accreditation, planning and tasking, quality management, information management as well as monitoring and evaluation of all components (Mine Risk Education, Victim Assistance, Land Release, stockpile destruction and advocacy) of mine action programme in country.

Our Goals

There are two desired outcomes for the projects that address issues of Crisis Prevention and Recovery: 1) decreased risk of natural and man‐made hazards to rural and urban livelihoods and infrastructure and recovery mechanisms are in place and 2) the Government is able to plan, coordinate and implement comprehensive mine action.more
