International Recovery Platform

ACP-EU Natural Disaster Facility (NDF)

Jointly managed by the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) and the European Union (EU), NDF operates as a flexible instrument which responds to clearly specified needs of ACP states that anticipate the onslaught of a natural disaster, or is recovering from the negative long-term effects of a natural disaster. NDF promotes preventive initiatives, disseminates information, and develops and strengthens research and management skills.

Activities in disaster reduction
NDF aims to provide comprehensive mechanisms to assist ACP States and Regions with: disaster risk reduction, preparedness and mitigation; response, recovery and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation; and operating effective early warning systems that are people-focused, and completing vulnerability assessments and mapping.
