Reducing risks and building resilience
Rapid-onset disasters, like earthquakes, and slow-onset crises, like drought, can derail livelihoods. We educate communities about
these risks and help them to be better prepared. We also liaise with governments and
other stakeholders to reduce the impact of disasters. Joint initiatives include early warning systems based on mobile phones, livestock insurance, earthquake-resistant infrastructure, and social safety nets such as cash transfer programs.
