DARDC Project Fact Sheet

The Project Document “Strengthening Community Resilience to Climate-induced disasters in the Dili to Ainaro Road Development Corridor” was signed by UNDP and the Ministry of Social Solidarity (MSS) in October 2014. The main objective of the project is to protect critical economic infrastructure for sustained human development from climate induced natural hazards (flooding, landslides, wind damage) through better policies, strengthened local Disaster Risk Management (DRM) institutions and investments in risk reduction measures within the Dili to Ainaro development corridor.

The project aims to achieve above objective by i) enhancing integration of climate change into national DRM policy; ii) providing access to knowledge and training on DRM; iii) strengthening institutional capacity for planning, budgeting and delivering investments into DRM, particularly at sub-national level; iv) developing early warning systems to reduce risks posed by climate-induced disasters; and v) reducing vulnerabilities of communities along the DARDC by reducing damage to infrastructure through implementing climate-resilient and ecosystem based approaches to DRM.
