On 20 February Community Resilience Forum gathered under one roof regional and community government representatives and development programme officers to discuss different topics, such as how to strengthen community resilience; the results of the incorporation of disaster risk management into socio-economic development strategies and programmes; the importance of utilising new technologies.
The Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski thanked all the partners for their active engagement: ‘For the EU, increasing disaster risk reduction capacities in third countries is very important. We are now in the fifth phase of DIPECO; I am very glad that there are dedicated projects for Armenia in this phase. Now we are in the process of discussing with the Armenian Government the inclusion of risk reduction preparation in our bilateral programmes, in particular in our annual Action Plan 2018′.
