Réduire les risques de catastrophes en Afrique de l'Ouest

Report
IRIN

DAKAR, 18 mars 2014 (IRIN) - Des chercheurs de DARA, une organisation de recherche humanitaire à but non lucratif basée à Madrid, ont développé une nouvelle méthodologie : l'indice de réduction des risques (RRI, selon le sigle anglais). Selon eux, cet indice pourrait aider davantage de pays à évaluer et à réduire les risques d'aléas et de catastrophes naturelles. Une évaluation réalisée dans six pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest avec cet indice a cependant mis en lumière des risques omniprésents et une capacité limitée à réduire la vulnérabilité.
