Crisis Prevention & Recovery
Thailand just experienced it's worst natural disaster in more than 60 years. More than 1 million people or more are affected annually by droughts or floods. Natural disasters and conflicts are among the two greatest threats to progress in human development, and it is a core part of our work in Thailand. Our early recovery work is based on carefully conducted joint needs assessments and acts as a bridge between humanitarian and longer-term development efforts.
UNDP works in Thailand with national partners like the Thai Red Cross and the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation on early recovery efforts. We also provide technical and financial support to the wider UN system to incorporate elements of crisis prevention and timely recovery support. more
