OUR FOCUS

Crisis Response

Crises strike first the rural poor and women

Moldova is highly vulnerable to climate change and disasters, with an average annual economic loss of 2.13% of GDP. Due to catastrophic events of 0.5% annual probability occurrence, the country will lose 10% of GDP per year. Disasters are affecting primarily the population living in the rural areas, where poverty is 7.5 times higher than in large cities, and women, who are more vulnerable and exposed to disaster risks.

Speed, effectiveness and predictability

UNDP is committed to support countries in a crisis context and ensure immediate relief efforts while helping communities to build resilience, the ability to cope with and quickly bounce back from unexpected and disruptive natural events. The United Nations Development Programme makes a critical contribution to these efforts, by being present on the ground immediately after the onset of a crisis and linking humanitarian response to long term recovery.
