CARE Madagascar celebrated IDDR 2015 on October 13th in Fenerive Est, Madagascar. CARE participated in this event through different actions. They set up a stand on the theme : “Root causes of disasters in the region and proposed mitigations solutions”.

Guillaume Devars, from CARE France says "We have exposed our good practice in DRR, tested not only in the Region but in all areas of intervention of our DRR program (all along the Eastern cost of Madagascar). The Prime Minister, the Chief of Atsinanana Region and a UNDP representative were attentive to our explanations. During the ceremony we ensured the presence of 3 representatives of vulnerable groups:
