Resilience Building – High Importance for Pamir Energy’s Service Delivery

The area of operation of PE is highly prone to hydro-meteorological and geological disasters. In addition, climate change might put infrastructure and services further at risk in the next 25 years, as an analysis of the huge Barsem mudflows of July 2015 revealed. Pamir Energy is at “the frontline” to deal with these challenges. Mitigating the adverse effects of natural hazards and environmental changes requires systematic integration of disaster risk reduction (DRR) into their work plan.
