Strategy 2020-25

Local Leadership for Global Impact

A member-led network

We connect frontline civil society organisations with national and international policymaking institutions and governments. We influence policies and practices by amplifying the voices of people most at risk.

This member-led global network strategy will guide our collective work for the next five years.


A world in which everyone works together to strengthen the resilience of people most at risk and prevent hazards from becoming disasters.
