Description

As a result of its geography, location and climate variability, Peru faces a variety of potential threats: the El Niño Southern Oscillation, torrential rains, landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, droughts, cold spells and epidemics. The means of subsistence are under additional threat due to climate change as well as the local degradation of the environment. These factors, along with high levels of vulnerability that characterize the urban and rural populations of Peru, lead to potential disaster scenarios. In this context, UNDP supports its counterparts in putting in place actions that reduce disaster risks and strengthen capacities for recovery in a disaster situation.

Duties and Responsibilities, among others:

  • Support of the disaster risk management project portfolio management;
  • Provision of top quality policy advice services to the Government and facilitation of knowledge building and management;
  • Support of strategic partnerships creation and implementation of the resource mobilization strategy.
