Novel Approaches

Our efforts that protect people from disasters are not limited to what has been done before. Each community has its unique context. What works in one may fail in another.


That’s why we develop approaches that are both locally-appropriate and feasible. Our role is catalyst and advisor. By harnessing local ingenuity, our programs empower societies to take on their challenges with confidence, now and in the future, based in science and evidence, inclusion.
