Disaster Risk Reduction Platform
SDC ensures that its programmes and projects are disaster-resilient and prevent the further increase of risks – i.e. “ do no harm” - in all countries that are at a high or considerable risk of disaster and/or in activities (projects) with a spatial relevance. This can be achieved if programme staff have the correct technical, social and process skills and tools to implement the SDC Guidelines on DRR.
Making development and humanitarian efforts disaster-resilient and integrating risk reduction into the design of strategies, programmes and projects requires:
a) risk awareness;
b) knowledge of existing natural hazards and vulnerabilities;
c) thematic and technical competencies; and
d) the delegation of responsibilities to the local level (decentralization).
For these reasons, SDC has established an in-house community of practitioners, the DRR Network.
