The “Disaster Risk Reduction National Platform”/ARNAP Foundation is launching a new project. The main goal of the project is to support local-self governments to establishing and effective managing the disaster risk management fund in the context of developing community-based disaster risk management and emergency response capacity.
It also aims to increase the social responsibility of the community residents and their awareness of their role in the community issues.
Disaster risk reduction is part of sustainable development, requiring a community-based and multi-sectoral approach. Thus, the best way of enhancing disaster preparedness is educating the citizens, by providing information that can help during emergencies.

We would like to introduce you the report on COVID-19 socio-economic impact assessment (SEIA) of communities in Armenia.
The SEIA has revealed interlinked factors increasing the systemic impact of COVID-19 on the health, economy and social life of people in Armenian communities. The findings of the multidimensional impact assessment were discussed and triangulated with stakeholders in all regions (marzes) of Armenia and Yerevan. Based on the results of the assessment and inputs from the regional stakeholders and seasoned experts involved in the SEIA, a set of targeted recommendations and suggestions were proposed.
