The European Union-funded disaster risk reduction ‘ Strengthning and consolidating national and community capacities for effective diaster preparedness and response in Lesotho.' project represents a continuation and potential consolidation of past European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) projects that have been dedicated to enhancing, supporting, and promoting disaster risk management.
The project also contributes to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 13, which calls for urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts, particularly in preparedness and risk reduction. Reducing disaster risks and preparing for potential disasters is a responsibility we all share. Let us unite to protect our children from the harsh realities of climate change.
