LRRD - Linking Relief, Rehabilitation and Development

Humanitarian crises often destroy the basis for daily life in terms of human dignity. It is necessary to start with life saving activities before rehabilitation programmes stabilise the economic and social well-being, and a transition to development work can be made. Therefore, HOPE‘87 also implements projects in the following areas of intervention:

  • Emergency Aid, Relief and Rehabilitation: Support for victims of natural as well as man-made disasters
  • Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Preparedness: Integration of Disaster Risk Management aspects in the education system
