DRR Forum Pakistan celebrated the IDDR with an awareness event to celebrate communities’ efforts in reducing their risk to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of DRR, and to encourage every citizen and government to take part in building more disaster resilient communities. Members of civil society, NGOs, INGOs, donor agencies, Academia, government officials, academia and media attended this celebration.

The DRR Forum is an informal group of civil society organizations voluntarily coming together on issues of common interest in the field of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRR/M) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA), at the national level in Pakistan. The purpose of the DRR Forum is to enhance communication, coordination and information sharing on DRR/M and CCA between all relevant stakeholders in order to promote, improve and integrate DRR and CCA in humanitarian and development programs in Pakistan. Membership in the DRR Forum is open to any international NGO, national NGO, or Red Cross/Red Crescent organization that is actively working on DRR/CCA in Pakistan. The current structure includes 113 Members (38 international NGOs, 68 national NGOs, 3 UN organizations  and 4 Red Cross/Red Crescent Organizations).

The event was supported by Islamic Relief, CARE, Caritas, Karawan, Malteser International and Save the Children. Islamic Relief sent us kindly some snap shots of the event activity together with a report that you can download below.
