Crisis prevention & recovery

What We Do

Disasters and violent conflicts are among the two greatest threats to progress in human development in the 21st century. This is why crisis prevention and recovery is a cornerstone of the work of UNDP. In 2010 UNDP provided risk reduction, prevention and recovery support to 86 countries, stabilizing communities, supporting short-term employment and livelihoods, reestablishing governance and the rule of law, and promoting gender equality throughout. We support countries to manage conflict and disaster risks, and to rebuild for resilience once crisis has past. Our crisis recovery work is based on carefully conducted joint needs assessments and acts as a bridge between humanitarian and longer-term development efforts.

Our Goals

We aim to ensure that UNDP’s development efforts, and those of the wider UN system in situations of fragility, incorporate necessary elements of crisis prevention and timely recovery support. This requires a focus on skills and capacities in national institutions and communities – in order that risks of disasters and violent conflict are minimized and a foundation for sustainable development secured.more
