Title: 85,000 ideas to strengthen community resilience : GNDR position on disaster risk reduction in the post-2015 discourse

Year: 2014 | Pages: 2 | Size: A3

Description

In the last six years, GNDR has worked with over 85,000 community members to gain a cross-section of perspectives from affected communities, local authorities and civil society organisations where disasters have the most impact. This massive body of evidence from our Views from the Frontline programme has revealed 6 key challenges viewed by local stakeholders as most critical to strengthening community resilience. Further, this position document tells how 85,000 low-income households have helped GNDR to understand how they manage hazards of all kinds, in a complex, uncertain and fragile environment, as their own way to identify pathways for strengthening community resilience. Out of this research, GNDR shows 5 key recommendations to achieve a post-2015 framework relevant to the people and communities most affected by disasters.
