    Strengthening Resilience of Afghanistan’s Vulnerable Communities Against Disasters (SRACAD)

    The SRACAD project has been designed with a strong emphasis on community-based preparedness for natural disasters, with the principal vehicles for this work being government institutions, community structures and schools.  Given these weaknesses in the area of community-based disaster preparedness, the SRACAD project will work closely with government institutions to build capacity and understanding of resilience, DRR and climate-related risks through local community structures and schools. SRACAD aims to ensure that government institutions have the knowledge needed to effectively respond to natural hazards such as floods, droughts and avalanches, as well as plan for adapting to the wider impacts of climate change.

    Community development | Health | Livelihood | WASH

    During the funding cycle (2015 - 2017) we plan to continue work with underserved rural communities in the provinces of Faryab, Ghor and Badakhshan. The prgramme will address problems of unsafe water, poor sanitation and hygiene, complications with pregnancies, a shortage of income generating opportunities, vulnerabilities to disasters (i.e., droughts, landslides, etc.) and a lack of nutritional training and food availability.

    These interlinked problems of poverty have often been a result of communities living in locations that are prone to natural disasters, with chances for improvement and development missed as a result of decades of conflict. Over the next 3 years an estimated 38,000 people will benefit from the changes brought about by project activities involving their families.
