UNDP strengthens the capacities of African countries to prevent armed conflict, mitigate the risk and effects of natural disasters and build back better and stronger. When a crisis strikes, while the humanitarian response focuses on the immediate lifesaving needs of a population, UNDP supports those responsible to work towards longer-term development objectives. UNDP also ensures disaster risk reduction and climate risk management are built into national and local development plans, with a strong institutional basis for follow through.
