Mission

World Animal Protection, formerly the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), is a global animal welfare organisation with nearly 50 years of safeguarding animal lives in disasters and as a result supporting the livelihoods and resilience of their communities. WSPA works to end the suffering of animals around the world. Our vision is for animal welfare to matter and for animal cruelty to end. Through strategic campaigning and by providing our lasting solutions, we aim to put animal welfare on the global agenda and show that what’s good for animals is good for the world.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Animals play a central role in the lives of people across the world, many of them vulnerable to disasters. The contribution of animals to many development issues – such as nutrition, food security, agricultural output, financial and social functions – is enormous. Their indirect contribution is often undervalued when attempts are made to understand the impact of disasters. WSPA recognises and promotes the solution that to protect the lives of millions of animals, their communities’ livelihoods and food security, and ultimate resilience to disasters, more needs to be done to integrate animals as part of government emergency and risk reduction planning, policy and response.

With a global team of disaster response, risk reduction and technical advisors ready to respond all year round to the impact of disasters on animal and community lives WSPA is well placed to draw on its evidence and research to provide solutions to a key aspect of community vulnerability.

Policies and Programmes in DRR

WSPA recognises and promotes the solution that to protect the lives of millions of animals, their communities’ livelihoods and food security and ultimate resilience to disasters more needs to be done to integrate animals as part of government emergency planning, policy and response. By ensuring that resources are made available to animal owners to help support their animals survival along with taking the right steps to ensure they can look after their animals as they begin to rebuild and recover their lives from before the disaster there will be less negative impacts on the economy, food security and social structures at both community and national level. For this reason animal welfare is key to many of today’s major development vulnerabilities.
