Disaster prevention

Floods, droughts, hurricanes; natural hazards occur every day and often affect the same vulnerable people. Time and again homes are damaged, crops lost and families torn apart. Billions are spent to repair damages and save lives at the last moment.

We cannot prevent natural hazards from happening, but we can limit their consequences. By making preparations with local communities before disaster strikes, we can save lives and prevent unimaginable damage and suffering.
