Titre : Community Resilience through Early Warning (Ghana)

Pays : Ghana

Durée : 2012 – 2015

Domaine d’intervention : Sustainable Development

Partenaires : National Disaster Management Organization( NADMO), Ghana Meteorological Agency

Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is an urgent and significant development issue in Ghana. Recognizing the importance of strengthening DRR capacities in achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction in Ghana, this project aims to build capacities within the country to reduce disaster risk by putting in place an integrated early warning system that is both scientific and people-centered.
The main goal of the project is to reduce disaster risks through better understanding hazard risks, reducing vulnerability to hazards and enhancing capacities for disaster risk reduction. In order to achieve these goals, the project aims to develop hazard maps, enhance systems and coordination capacities for early warning, and implement disaster risk reduction projects in 10 pilot sites.
The proposed project is designed in a way that it aligns with the Hyogo Framework of Action and the Ghana Plan of Action for DRR and CCA, and leads to tangible results in both the national and community levels. Through the implementation of hazard mapping, early warning, and vulnerability assessment and reduction, the project aims to achieve 1) a reduction of economic and human losses and damages from priority disasters, and 2) establishment of effective early warning and communication for priority hazards to reduce disaster risks in the 10 pilot sites by 2015.
