Gaza Risk Reduction and Mitigation (GRRAM)
Organisation: Catholic Relief Services
Partners: An-Najah National University (NNU), Al Azhar University in Gaza
Location: Occupied Palestinian Territories
Type of grant: Core – development
Create a viable model for designing and implementing DRR projects in complex humanitarian emergencies that occur in urban, conflict-prone areas with non-state actors.
•Limited experience of DRR in complex humanitarian emergencies that occur in urban, conflict-prone areas with non-state actors
•No guidelines for designing and implementing DRR projects in such contexts
•Little capacity to adequately manage disasters in Gaza
Innovation Factor: Development of a new programmatic framework for DRR in urban and conflict prone areas.
Added Value: Enhancing DRR learning and practice to reflect different contexts.
Key Deliverables / Impact:
•Reduce disaster risk at the point where three major variables intersect: urban-settings, conflict-prone areas, and non-state actors
•Develop, implement and diffuse a “How-To-Guide on DRR Programming in Urban, Conflict-Prone Areas with Non-State Actors”
•Hazard mapping, vulnerability and capacity assessments (VCA), disaster risk reduction planning, and implementation of DRR initiatives in Gaza
