Views from the Frontline

VFL is a ground-breaking participatory monitoring programme designed to strengthen public accountability for DRR policy execution by providing the first independent global review of progress towards the implementation of disaster risk reduction at the local level.

VFL gathers a broad cross-section of perspectives from communities, local authorities and civil society organisations who are most affected by disasters.

The biennial programme recognises the value of a consolidated civil society voice across different regions and draws attention to DRR challenges seen by local stakeholders as critical to strengthening community resilience.
