Categories of membership

After more than one year of consultations with members, in May 2018 GNDR undertook a recategorisation exercise of its types of membership in order to update its membership list. This requested Full Members to demonstrate that they are active civil society organisations, and that they are committed at an organisational level to being a part of the GNDR network. 

There are now three categories of members:

  • Full Members: Organisations with full rights and obligations.
  • Affiliate Members: Individuals that are directly affiliated to a Full Member (e.g. they work at, volunteer at or are on the Board of a Full Member organisation)
  • Associate Members: Individuals not affiliated to a Full Member, but who are interested in the added value of being part of GNDR.

The rights and responsibilities of the different types of member are outlined in full in GNDR's Membership Guidelines.

GNDR welcomes applications for Full Membership from all active civil society organisations and affiliated individuals who have an interest in Disaster Risk Reduction. Associate Membership is open to individuals not affiliated to a Full Member or to non-civil society organisations and individuals with an interest in disaster risk reduction. We also look forward to forming strategic Alliances and Partnerships with organisations and associations, to engage in joint actions and promote mutually reinforcing agendas that contribute towards shared goals and objectives.

What are you waiting for?

The application process for GNDR membership is free and there are no annual membership fees.

If you or your organisation are interested in being part of GNDR, applying for membership is easy: start the online membership application form now!



We look forward to greeting you as a new member!
