    No results found.

    This report aims to highlight the current strengths of the institutional disaster risk reduction (DRR) system for agriculture in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as indicate existing gaps and capacity needs to further enhance it. A comprehensive assessment is conducted, which includes a general overview of the country’s agricultural sector and outlines the most frequent natural hazards that are impacting the sector. It is followed by an analysis of the existing legal, policy and institutional structure and discusses various components of the system, including e.g. the functioning of early warning systems, assessments of disaster risks, post-disaster needs assessments, including damages and losses assessments and the availability of agricultural insurance for farmers.

    Resilience Building in Ethiopia
    FAO Programme Review 2024

    Under the resilience building programme, Ethiopia is a focus country for the regional initiative on Building Resilience in Africa’s Dry lands. This initiative aims to strengthen institutional capacity for resilience; support early warning and information management systems; build community level resilience; and respond to emergencies and crises. FAO Ethiopia provides support to the government in strengthening early warning, preparedness, disaster mitigation and response capacity at all levels through building early warning capacity of stakeholders on disasters (flood, drought, and pest/diseases outbreaks) and information exchange. Disaster Risk Management (DRM) capacity and support to national and regional disaster risk management coordination platforms continue to be strengthened. Specifically, FAO promotes disaster risk reduction approaches and best practices through supporting communities through diversified livelihood options, supporting flood protection, prevention, and mitigation actions for major affected areas of the country, and support irrigation development for viable and better livelihood options. Enhancing the social protection of vulnerable communities through promotion of social protection and agriculture linkage, build capacity of key stakeholders in the implementation of the Social Protection Policy, and provide technical support for effective implementation of the National Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP4) of the government, and link NRM related interventions with social and livelihood protection measures.With support from resource partners such as Norway, Japan, United Nations Agency for International Development Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID-BHA), the European Commission (EC), German Cooperation and the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) funding through the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), FAO is implementing programmes and projects to strengthen the resilience of communities in Ethiopia in close collaboration and coordination with the government and partners.This document seeks to explore FAO's contributions to enhancing resilience capacities in Ethiopia, shedding light on the organization's multifaceted approach and its impact on vulnerable populations.

    FAO Regional Programme Framework for Disaster Risk Management 2010 -2013
    Reducing and managing disaster risk to improve food and livelihood security in Eastern and Central Africa
    2010

    Each year, countries in the Eastern and Central region of Africa (ECA) experience the highest number of natural hazards and people -induced disasters in all of Africa. More and more people are adversely affected by natural hazards, such as droughts and floods, as well as crop and livestock diseases, civil conflicts, unstable market conditions and volatile food prices, gender inequalities and HIV. As they result in the loss of lives, assets and livelihoods, these natural and people-induced disast ers affect men and women differently and, at the same time, weaken the social support systems. Given the complex nature of often simultaneous and protracted crises affecting ECA, coordinated action towards adopting a more holistic approach is needed. Such an approach would integrate disaster risk reduction (pre-disaster preparedness, prevention and mitigation) into emergency response and post-disaster recovery strategies. In line with this need, FAO has elaborated a new Strategic Framewo rk that will serve as the foundation for the regional disaster risk management (DRM) programme in Eastern and Central Africa. The regional approach is based on the new corporate strategy aimed at improving preparedness and response to food and agricultural threats and emergencies by effectively linking short- and long-term interventions through disaster risk reduction (preparedness, prevention and mitigation), emergency response and transition options. This Regional DRM Programme Framewo rk provides an integrated approach to disaster risk reduction (DRR) and DRM interventions on natural hazards, crises and threats common to countries in ECA and acts as a platform for the development of national Plans of Action (PoAs). This Framework is intended as a working document, subject to change, aimed at supporting the development and implementation of DRR and DRM efforts in food and agriculture in coordination with governments, regional economic commissions (RECs), African Union (AU), UN -system, particularly the other two Rome-based agencies (the World Food Programme [WFP] and the International Fund for Agricultural Development [IFAD]), NGOs and other stakeholders in the region. Three main programme priorities are foreseen for 2010-2013: (1) to enhance and promote risk reduction concepts and practices in programming; (2) to increase the timeliness and quality of emergency response to disasters, crises and threats; and (3) to integrate transition concepts and linkages related t o transforming risks into programming. The overall objective of the Regional DRM Programme Framework is to lessen the adverse impacts of hazards, to reduce vulnerability and to strengthen community resilience, in an effort to help the countries in the region to become more food secure and to enable them to focus on developing sustainable food and agriculture systems. The following countries will be covered by this regional programme: Burundi, the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Somalia, Tanzania and Uganda.
