13-17 May 2019
We’re participating in this year’s Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, organised by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). Here's an outline of the key events we’re involved in.
Community Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) is an OFDA/USAID funded project that aims at increasing government, CSO, and CBO capacities in disaster resilience through working together and increasing political commitment to the expansion of innovative community-based solutions.
As a part of the ongoing 3-year ‘Institutionalising Sustainable CBDRM’ project, GNDR organised a regional workshop in Bangkok, Thailand, on April 26-27. Primarily led by Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, GNDR’s regional partner, the workshop was a joint effort between GNDR, ADPC, SEEDS-India and CDP-Philippines. Among the 34 participants, there were 19 women and 15 men.
On 10 and 11 May, our partner RET International implemented the first sub-regional workshop in Panama, gathering 25 representatives from 25 networks across Central America and the Caribbean.
GNDR in partnership with RET international held on 23 and 24 April, a regional workshop attended by 35 Civil Society Organisations in Panama City to identify the success factors of institutionalisation of a sustainable CBDRM.
