SECTOR OVERVIEW

During disasters, affected populations often face challenges that material assistance alone cannot adaquately address. For example, conflicts or natural disasters often separate families, disrupting normal care-giving for children, the elderly, and disabled persons. Displacement, loss of family members, or disruption of livelihoods may increase vulnerability to violence, exploitation, and abuse for men, women, and children. Conflict exposes some people to harmful threats from attacks or landmines.

Plus qu'en rendez-vous traditionnel autour du saint patron, la présente édition a eu lieu sous le signe de l'espoir et de la réconciliation entre tous ses fils et filles. Un moment de joie, en dépit des difficultés socioéconomiques et de la situation de post-désastre.

Les effets de la dégradation de l'environnement n'épargnent guère la commune de Chadonnière. A chaque tombée de pluie, les eaux de la ravine Lapas envahissent, en un temps record, le bourg de Chadonnière (dans le Sud), occasionnant d'importants préjudices. Pour amoindrir les dégâts, le PNUD finance sur place la construction de canaux.

« Lorsque cette ravine est en crue, l'eau emporte presque tout sur son passage. Presque tous les jardins des paysans et leurs têtes de bétails sont emportées ».
