Singular Objective

We aim to

  • Develop an active cross-sectorial resilience network for the exchange of expert knowledge, best practices, and working models to create synergies with the singular focus of building disaster resilience.

 

  • Represent and advocate for the needs of most vulnerable communities that are hit hardest within our 276 Local Governance; Metropolitan Municipal and Districts Assembly’s – MMDAs (276) affected by disaster risk and impacts of climate change.

 

  • Conduct inclusive, safe, and prosperous community engagements to make a case for Ghana to engage in a proactive disaster risk reduction program that includes capacity building and research used to formulate policies that emphasize mitigation and recovery rather than prevention.

 

  • Develop a national resilience framework that can be used to coordinate the Ghanaian response  to natural hazards in a comprehensive, fact-based, equitable, and capacity-building manner.

In all, one word encapsulates the entirety of our existence – Resilience - At Heart and our core value.
