Member of PPRD South 3 Partner Country Network
Palestine is one of the 10 partner countries of the PPRD South 3 programme. Together, they are mobilizing to develop Euro-Mediterranean collaboration in risk management and disaster preparedness.
In Palestine, the implementation of the activities of PPRD South 3 is led by the Palestinian Civil Defence. A national disaster risk management process, including new risk reduction legislation and a new institutional framework for disaster risk management, has been initiated by the Palestinian authorities. However, due to administrative fragmentation and restrictions on access, the majority of Palestinian communities are not part of a comprehensive national response plan developed and tested, and rely to a large extent on local, formal and informal structures and volunteer resources for emergency response.
