  • About

This EU Aid Volunteer project aims to improve the response and coping capacities of the most vulnerable communities exposed to multiple crises. Activities will strengthen the response and resilience capacity of vulnerable and disaster-affected communities respectively in Middle East and North Africa, Southern America, Central America and Africa.

 

The project will work through an integrated disaster management approach, boosting and supporting institutional and civic involvement through the deployment of EU Aid Volunteers. Opportunities for EU Aid Volunteers will include disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. They will be supported by online volunteers.
