The Global Network of Civil Society Organisations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR) was established in 2007. Since then, GNDR has grown as the largest international network of civil society organisations working to strengthen resilience and reduce risk in communities worldwide. We are more than 1,400 organisations, many of them grassroots and local community groups as well as national, regional, and international organisations and networks. We support the interface between civil society organisations at the frontline and local, national, and international policy-making institutions and governance structures. GNDR members work together to amplify the voices of people most at risk and to influence policies and practices. We strengthen our capacities by creating knowledge, and through collaborative learning and action. Together our network is working to make an impact in over 120 countries.
Our vision is a world in which everyone works together to strengthen the resilience of people most at risk and prevent hazards from becoming disasters.
GNDR has three mutually reinforcing objectives:
- Strengthen the collaboration, solidarity, and mobilisation of civil society organisations
- Champion a localisation movement
- Strive for risk-informed development
