Natural Hazards

Total commitments by focus area in 2016

As the world population rises, natural hazards like earthquakes and droughts threaten more people than ever, and rapid urbanisation makes the task of building resilience even more complex. Poor communities face double jeopardy, being both most vulnerable to disaster when it strikes and least equipped to manage on-going risks by, for instance, upgrading infrastructure or buying insurance.

Focusing on disaster-prone regions, we partner with organisations that train people in such communities to prevent and prepare for disasters, that promote safe and decent housing and that provide emergency aid in severe catastrophes.
