Call for good practices on public-private partnerships

United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction

The UN/ISDR secretariat has issued a call for good practices and lessons learned that link disaster risk reduction and public-private partnership. We are seeking examples of projects and initiatives across humanitarian, environmental and development sectors that promote positive changes to how public-private partnerships have strengthened resilience to disasters.

The resulting publication will potentially prove valuable for addressing future public-private partnerships in disaster risk reduction. We invite you to share with us your initiatives at community, national, regional or international levels. Guidelines for submissions are attached in English.

Do not hesitate to contact Stefanie Dannenmann at dannenmann[at], should you have any questions on this subject.

Please feel free to share this message with your relevant networks.

Submission deadline: all contributions should be sent by 31 July 2008 (extended from 31 May 2008).

Follow the 'see also' links for examples of works already published in the Good Practices and Lessons Learned series, 2007.
