Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction - Third Session
The Global Network for Disaster Risk Reduction launched Views from the Frontline 2011 at this global conference in May 2011. A key theme of the conference was ‘increased investment in local action'. Click here to find out more.
Views from the Frontline 2011 is about 'local risk governance' - People feel the situation is getting worse, not better!
Views from the Frontline 2009 is a unique perspective of the progress countries are making in preparing themselves for disaster.
