In Tunisia, UNDP has been working with national and local partners to implement the program “Support for strengthening national and local capacities for Disaster Risk Reduction” since 2017. This support has been materialised mainly through two projects, namely:
- “Improving community resilience and the safety of local communities vulnerable in urban areas in terms of Disaster Risk Reduction, for the towns of Boussalem, Gabes, Kasserine, Mateur and Siliana”, funded by the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS);
- “Support for strengthening local capacities for Disaster Risk Reduction in the communes of Ain Drahem and Tataouine ”, financed by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO).
IRMA Founding partner Lezlie Morinière together and and Associate Charlotte Gendre are developing communication pieces that capture the achievements, results and lessons learned of this program. The results of this documentation effort will be used to inform, guide and advocate for future Disaster Risk Reduction interventions in Tunisia.
