Mission

The Global Initiative on Disaster Risk Management (GIDRM) was founded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is implemented by the German Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The project was set up to strengthen the German contribution to improved disaster risk management worldwide and to support our partners with the implementation of the Sendai Framework.

In short, the Global Initiative on Disaster Risk Management supports partner countries in their efforts against extreme natural and weather-related events, to safeguard development and to protect lives.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Our Goal: to foster practical coherence for resilience. With practical coherence we consider an approach to HOW coherence can be achieved. More specifically, we look at three processes: planning, implementing and reporting as key areas for coherence, which will lead to increased resilience - the ultimate goal.

In its first phase (2013 - 2018) the project had aimed at matching the demand for specialized services and technologies ‘Made in and with Germany’. To this end, it brought together German and regional experts from the public and private sector, academia and civil society to facilitate mutual learning across regions and to develop and pilot innovative solutions.

In its second and current phase (2018 - 2021) the focus has shifted to highlight the increasing need for more coherence in planning, implementation and reporting regarding the global agendas (meaning the Sendai Framework, but also the Agenda 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement and the New Urban Agenda).

Furthermore, we believe to effectively reduce the impacts of disasters, risk factors have to be identified and tailor-made solutions developed. To achieve this, it is important to raise risk awareness, to encourage knowledge-sharing between experts and decision makers and to create space for innovation across regions.

DRR activities
Policies and Programmes in DRR

GIDRM identifies national and subnational examples of successful agenda-coherence. With respect to the implementation of global agendas, we define agenda-coherence as concerted state action in all relevant sectors and at all relevant levels in order to achieve both common and respective goals of all agendas more efficiently and effectively.

The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.'|t }}
