OUR FOCUS

Climate and
Disaster Resilience

Overview

UNDP’s support to Somalia on climate change and disaster resilience is shaped by three important global agreements: the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction, and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In Somalia UNDP's work is delivered under the  Government of Somalia's National Development Plan 2017-2019, and in alignment with a Resilience and Recovery Framework that the Government launched in 2018, with the support of UNDP, UN partners,  the EU and the World Bank. UNDP works with government partners, local authorities, civil society organisations and communities to help Somali people adapt to the impacts of climate change,  access clean water and energy, reduce the risk of cyclical disasters, and support resilient disaster recovery and response.
