Context

Djibouti is vulnerable to a number of natural disasters. The country is occasionally affected by catastrophic floods resulting in massive damage to people and properties. The most recent flash floods in 2004 and in 2013 inflicted heavy casualties on the population and caused enormous destruction to roads, houses, and infrastructures, leaving people homeless and with no means of income. With reduced employment opportunities and limited access to resources, women and the poor are particularly vulnerable.
