July 28, 2018, Kabul – Last week, a delegation of three iMMAP Afghanistan staff, led by the Country Representative Dr. Andrea Porro, met with His Excellency Mr. Najeeb Aqa Fahim, Afghanistan Minister of State for Disaster Management.
The meeting was a follow-up on the participation of Dr. Porro in the National Climate Change Workshop, in which humanitarian stakeholders in Afghanistan discussed the current national status on Disaster Risk Reduction and the implementation of international policy such as the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction.
During the meeting, both parties agreed on a strengthened iMMAP support to the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority -ANDMA.
iMMAP has a long-standing history in assisting ANDMA in Afghanistan. We provide technical support to the Afghan Government to coordinate the preparedness and response for the numerous natural disasters that occur in the country every year.
