GNDR on track and thriving: results of GNDR Strategy mid-term review

GNDR has contributed to bringing community voices to high level discussions, and “everyday disasters” onto the global agenda. GNDR’s consistent focus on global advocacy has yielded clear results, and the network is now recognised as a key player in DRR.

These are some of the findings of a mid-term review of GNDR’s 2016-20 Strategy carried out by the consultancy firm INTRAC, which finds the network very much on track with achieving its overall strategy, and thriving.

According to the report, “the strategy is broadly being achieved, with the most progress evident in terms of influencing for the inclusion of civil society in shaping and monitoring Sendai Framework, and more recently strengthening the secretariat.”

In spite of financial challenges in the beginning of the period, the network has managed to stay productive, and now finds itself in a healthy financial situation, with a secretariat with more than double the number of staff compared to 2016.

The review points to a large, diverse and growing membership base who are actively engaged and generally satisfied, although there are still challenges as far as clarifying the mandate of the network to members, and strengthening engagement with them.

Recommendations for the second part of the period, therefore, include an increased focus on membership engagement, and knowledge sharing and learning within the network in general.
