A recipe for resilience

The unique approach from the Partners for Resilience (PfR) to the building of community resilience, developed with more than 40 local implementing partner agencies, integrates climate change adaptation and ecosystem management and restoration into disaster risk reduction (DRR). This experience over the past four years of evidence-based, holistic risk reduction can contribute meaningfully to the collective commitment to a post-2015 framework. The PfR key messages and ‘calls to action’ at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR) at Sendai, Japan, are presented in this position document.


Description:

The Partners for Resilience (PfR) alliance has been working since 2011 to reduce the
impact of natural hazards on vulnerable people in nine countries: Ethiopia,
Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mali, Nicaragua, the Philippines and Uganda.

We are the Netherlands Red Cross, CARE Nederland, Cordaid, the Red Cross Red
Crescent Climate Centre, Wetlands International and our many local partners.
