The Objective of Emergency Flood Assistance
Floods and landslides are one of the worst natural disasters people can face.
They have massive destructive power and leave vast numbers of victims every time they occur.
Throughout history, floods have killed millions of lives and caused substantial damaging outcomes, affecting many countries worldwide.
Although flood risk is high and expected to occur in some countries around the world like the Netherlands, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Philipines; however, other countries which have a medium chance of floods have become riskier after being overwhelmed with the destruction of war and armed conflicts such as Northern Syria, Syrian-Jordanian and Syrian-Lebanese borders, in addition to Yemen and Palestine.
Here are some of the objectives of emergency flood assistance are:
- To reduce the risks of floods and maintain people’s safety.
- To limit the extent of disruption and damage.
- To avoid the environmental impacts of flood hazard management.
- And to minimize the economic impact of the interruption.
The United Nations has described this as an “unprecedented climate catastrophe.”
