This case study showcases the Ethiopia Disaster Risk Reduction national planning system and how the ACCRA programme supports its design, roll-out and scale-up using participatory tools and capacity building as a way to influence at all levels.
This government-led programme seeks to change Ethiopia’s reactive approach towards emergencies and find new ways of managing risk. This is a model based on decentralised and participatory approaches, with significant local input from governmental experts, community representatives and civil society organisations.
