International resilience

International resilience advocacyVulnerable communities should be able to withstand disaster when it strikes.

We build resilience in individuals and communities to help them prepare for and recover from disasters.

What’s wrong?

Some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities suffer the most from disasters and climate change. But they have the least capacity to cope, recover or adapt. 

325 million extremely poor people will be living in the 49 most hazard-prone countries in 2030.

What are we calling for?

  • Communities need more investment to withstand increasing disaster risk.
  • Community resilience to crises should be made a priority. People, not just nations, should be at the centre of a development framework which manages disaster risk.
  • Community resilience must be a priority for the post-2015 sustainable development goals, with commitment from the UN in 2014. 
  • The UK government needs to invest in flexible development and humanitarian programmes.
