Disaster risk reduction, emergency relief and reconstruction
Vign_ngo_kala

Emergency relief means saving lives, alleviating suffering, and ensuring survival. Damage is repaired as rapidly as possible, and additional emergency measures are taken to help the victims survive. The next step is to re-establish basic supplies and services and to support the afflicted population in the task of reconstruction. Delivery of aid is namely targeted to populations stricken by natural disasters or affected by armed conflict. In this connection, preventive measures and advocacy are also vested with a key role.
