Disaster Risk Reduction

Disaster risk reduction (DRR) is a critical area of involvement for IOM. IOM is conducting an initial assessment in collaboration with local authorities to identify country priorities with the aim of working with Maldivian authorities to enhance emergency preparedness as well as mainstreaming DRR in livelihood and community stabilization projects. As the lead agency of the UN cluster for Camp Management in Disasters, IOM also contributes to the preparation of the national Contingency Plan.
