Invitation: Championing a Localisation Movement in DRR

This is an invitation from the Swedish CSO Resilience Network, the Global Network of Civil Society Organisations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR) and the Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency (Sida).  A save the date was announced 1st of September.

The interactive seminar is aimed at Program Directors and staff responsible for contacts with Sida CIVSAM and Sida HUM. We wish to amplify the voices of 100,000 people most at-risk of disasters and discuss how we as actors in Sweden can work together to respond to this local data. The objective is to discuss the importance of localization in disaster risk reduction (DRR). The seminar will also discuss a roadmap forward. It is an excellent opportunity to meet with Sida CIVSAM, Sida HUM, the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other network members.
