Strengthening policy dialogue on DRR & RR of Andean countries
The project aims at strengthening policy dialogue on Disaster Risk Reduction and Rapid Response among Andean countries in particular and within the Latin America countries in general. The participation of SDC’s key partners in DRR and humanitarian events (e.g. the yearly Humanitarian Network and Partnership Week) will facilitate knowledge exchange, experience sharing and increased collaboration within the region. The project will further contribute to this by engaging in knowledge management supporting regional policy dialogue, and by financially contributing to specific events.

|Background||To reduce human suffering and development setbacks, Disaster Risk Reduction and Rapid Response must be a priority of decision-makers. This requires sustaining and reiterating the political will at the highest level of national authorities. The UNDRR regional and global platforms are the most important political fora of the DRR agenda to discuss progress in the implementation of the Sendai Framework and to strengthen collaboration among countries and stakeholders. The solutions formulated during these conferences feed into multilateral negotiations, and regional and national sector policies.|
|Objectives||Strengthen policy dialogue, knowledge exchange and collaboration on Disaster Risk Reduction and Rapid Response among Andean countries at regional and global level to contribute to more effective Disaster Risk Management in the region.|
