This 18-month project will seek to improve understanding, preparedness, and resilience to industrial/ecological risks and health response capacity in government-controlled areas (GCA) along the Line of Contact.
Implemented by an ACTED-led consortium (including IMPACT and WHO), and benefitting 180,000 individuals and 45 organizations, the intervention aims to reduce risk vulnerabilities and increase health response capacities.

Together, partners will

a) identify ecological/industrial risks;
b) develop and update local plans and support their implementation;
c) develop multi-hazard health risk assessments and contingency plans;
d) increase community resilience, preparedness, and capacity to cope with risk;
e) advocate for policy change and investments in DRR.
