Disaster Risk Reduction & Ecosystems Management
Communities living in disaster prone areas are frequently exposed to devastating floods, drought and landslides resulting in food insecurity, disruption of livelihoods and destruction of property. Beyond the physical effects of disasters are the lasting psychosocial problems and disruption.
TPO Uganda strengthens the capacity of disaster prone communities and local governments, to identify, manage, and mitigate the effects of disaster on their livelihoods. Together with communities we develop and support communities to roll out early warning systems. We also facilitate communities to adopt environmentally sustainable economic activities that preserve the ecosystem.
