MacDonald Kadzatsa

Planning and Coordination Advisor

I am disaster risk reduction practitioner and provide technical support to governments in various areas to strengthen capacities in disaster risk management. I am currently working with the Ministry of Local Government in Uganda. My current role as Planning and Coordination Advisor is to enhance capacities of District Local Governments (DLGs) to integrate resilience and risk management into district development plans (DDPs) with focus on the 11 refugee hosting districts. This support is in respect of the Uganda Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) for which Resilience is one of the major pillars for intervention. I am in the process of developing draft guidelines for integrating resilience into District Development Plans.
