Disaster Risk Reduction - Creating Synergies at the Grassroots

  • Date & Time: Thursday 18 June (16:30 - 18:30)
  • Room: 18
  • Participation: Open
  • Organizer: Global Network of CSOs for Disaster Reduction, GDN, ADRRN, SEEDS, GROOTS


The 'Views from the Frontline' study carried out by the Global Network of NGOs for Disaster Risk Reduction reveals that progress reported at the national level in formulating Disaster Risk Reduction policies and plans to implement the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 is not generating widespread "systemic" change in local-level practices. The study also reveals that good local level practices on Disaster Risk Reduction do exist where civil society
Organizations are working alongside vulnerable people. The Round Table deliberates on ways and means of creating synergies to enable better coordinated, benchmarked and scaled up action at the grassroots level. It is a moderated discussion between major networks from different regions of the world.
