Views from the Frontline 2013

VFL 2013: Beyond 2015 – was designed to better understand how at-risk people and local actors can support local change processes addressing differential vulnerabilities and strengthening community resilience. It draws lessons from the approaches local households adopt when faced with multiple hazards in the context of poverty, uncertainty, informality and fragility.


VFL 2013 draws together different sources of information including surveys in 57 countries, online and regional consultations and a major global conference of GNDR members held at the Hague, the Netherlands in March 2013.

Summary Report
