Crisis Prevention and Recovery

  • Increasing Resilience to Climate Change

    This project aims to reduce vulnerability of the mountainous communities of the Greater Caucasus to water stress and flood hazards by improving the water and flood management.

  • Building Capacities for Mine Action

    The goal of the project is to create a strong national mine action capacity for planning, coordinating and managing all mine and unexploded ordinance (UXO) related activities in currently unoccupied areas and enable it to expand to areas yet to be liberated. Project facilitates the continued mine/UXO clearance in more time- and cost-effective manner; the conduct of trainings and activities for mine risk education (MRE); the implementation of initiatives on Mine Survivors Assistance; and the promotion of Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action to become the International Centre for Mine Action.

OUR WORK - CRISIS PREVENTION AND RECOVERY

Many countries are increasingly vulnerable to violent conflicts or natural disasters that can erase decades of development and further entrench poverty and inequality. Azerbaijan still experiences the consequences of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and is increasingly exposed to natural disasters magnified by the climate change. Through its knowledge network, UNDP shares innovative approaches to reducing disaster risks and building community resilience to climate change effects, and supports the country in its post-conflict recovery efforts.
