Disaster Response Program:
Help communities in disaster mitigation, risk reduction, preparedness and disaster management in the disaster prone areas.
AA’s community development interventions are compromised due to frequent disasters such as floods, landslides, heavy snowfalls, and lately devastating earthquake of 2005. As a result of these disasters they lose livelihoods sources which are based on agriculture, livestock and poultry. Likewise it also affects infrastructure, irrigation, drinking water and sanitation systems. Despite occurrence of frequent disasters in KPK including Hazara Division, communities have no knowledge about disaster preparedness and mitigation. There have been no concrete efforts made to build capacity of communities to manage effects of disasters. The rescue, relief and rehabilitation operations are the only efforts made by public and private sector during and after disaster. The importance of these efforts can never be under-estimated but there is a great need to consider capacity building needs of the local communities to mitigate impacts of the future disasters to prevent loss of precious human lives, livestock, and family and community assets. These losses can be averted if sound preparedness efforts for disaster mitigation are taken.
