Policies and Programmes in DRR
Our policy influencing approach is based on research and operational experience gained over many years in South Asia, Africa and Latin America.
All our work is climate smart and designed to equip poor people to adapt to a changing climate and cope with severe weather events, while also capturing evidence and knowledge to generate the political will necessary to deliver this at scale.
We will put poor people central to the climate change agenda to ensure that mitigation, adaptation and loss and damage actions deliver for and do not compromise the development choices of the poorest. Only by reducing the risk of the poorest and most vulnerable will the risk exposure of the whole community be reduced.
- In the countries where we are working we will explore the causal relationship between climate change and natural disasters to help people better cope with uncertainty and natural disasters.
-We will work with all stakeholders including the private sector to understand the role that markets play (both positively and negatively) in building the resilience of the poorest and most vulnerable.
-We will call on governments and other key stakeholders to integrate Disaster Risk Reduction into their policies.
