Spread across more than 137 countries worldwide, our membership in excess of 850 organisations and 1,400 individuals in all regions share a vision: A vibrant, active, collaborative civil society supporting people and their communities, particularly poor and vulnerable groups, to prepare for, mitigate, respond to and recover from disasters, and adapt to hazards and a changing climate.
However, what brings our members together is being joined in the committment to working together, and engaging with partners and other stakeholders, to increase community resilience and reduce disaster risk around the world. GNDR operates through a global hub in London, England, and regional hubs, allowing better coordination within regions and developing regional positions.
Our Members work for a broad range of civil society organisations ranging from
- local or community-based groups
- national and international NGOs
- academic and research institutions
- faith based organisations
- organisations of volunteers
Many members within our network belong to other national and regional networks, alliances and associations.
