Regional Programme on Disaster Risk Reduction in South East Europe
The project "Building Capacity in Disaster Risk Reduction through Regional Cooperation and Collaboration in South East Europe", implemented under the UNDP coordination had overall objective: To reduce the risk of disasters associated with natural hazards in the Western Balkans and Turkey, in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action, by building the capacity of national and local authorities in promoting a coordinated approach to disaster risk reduction.
The specific objective of the project was to increase the regional disaster risk reduction cooperation in South East Europe, and to promote the harmonization of each country's disaster risk reduction methodologies, plans, and strategies in order to pave the way for the eventual preparation of a harmonized and mutually accepted regional disaster risk reduction strategy.
Destruction for Development
ObjectivesSustainable development cannot be achieved in an environment where people continue to feel threatened by violence and crime. Because the effective reduction of armed violence - including the prevention of crime - requires an integrated approach, UNDP began working to tackle arms proliferation, crime and violence from a human development perspective.
There is clear evidence that well-planned crime prevention strategies not only prevent crime and victimization, but also promote community safety and contribute to the sustainable development of countries. Effective, responsible crime prevention enhances the quality of life of all citizens. It has long-term benefits in terms of reducing the costs associated with the formal criminal justice system, as well as other social costs that result from crime. Crime prevention offers opportunities for a humane and more cost-effective approach to the problems of crime.
Aware of this problematic, the programme assists in the measurable improvement of safety and security in Croatian towns, cities and institutions through targeted awareness-raising, evidence-based improvements in Crime Prevention, community policing, criminal analysis of armed violence and crime, and ultimately by removing dangerous weapons that pose a risk to communities.
