The impact of Covid-19 shows us we’ve not made enough progress on achieving the targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. But what if we had done more before the outbreak?

Covid-19 will challenge our ability to come together to prevent disasters – and that’s a concern for everyone, not just DRR practitioners

By Bijay Kumar, Executive Director

Executive Director of Africa on the Move (AFRiMOVE) Allan Musinguzi tells us about his ambitions for his organization and his expectations on being a GNDR member in this interview. 

GNDR members connected for an online session hosted by Oxfam Global Humanitarian Team’s DRR Lead Valentina Evangelisti on Thursday 29 November. 

It is necessary to move from managing disaster to managing disaster risk. Prevention of disaster must be the priority now and going forward. This was one of the main messages coming out of the European Forum on Disaster Risk Reduction 2018, that was celebrated by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction on 21-23 November in Rome, Italy.

Remoteness, lack of cellular network, no local doctor and no education after 6th grade - these factors are no hindrance for CBDRM to be effective in a local community, Samuel Peter from Habitat for Humanity India reports. He recently visited the small Philippenean community of San Ildefonso as a part of a CBDRM exchange program between India and the Philippines.

Following the two first CBDRM learning exchanges in West Africa, Adessou Kossivi, GNDR's Regional Development Coordinator for West Africa writes on the multifaceted form resilience can take. 

"Our objective is to bring policies at grassroots level, we want comunities to directly channel their views with national policy makers" said Hepi Rahmawati, Programmes Manager at YAKKUM emergency Unit (YEU) an indonesian NGO working in disaster relief and community resilience.
