Our work is done on a bespoke, project by project basis.
Research has consistently shown that disasters have different impacts on different sections of society and that different groups experience disasters in very different ways. In fact, when a disaster strikes, women and girls, older people, those with disabilities, ethnic minorities and LGBTQ groups will often experience a much higher fatality rate, sustain more/ severe injuries and be more adversely impacted on an economic basis. Research has also shown that in the aftermath of disasters, the way humanitarian aid is distributed will also depend on the types of groups receiving that aid, impacting which sections of the community recover fastest.
Working with governments, NGOs, academia and our own independent research, DRR Dynamics aims to address these imbalances by working towards changing the ‘status quo’ in disaster risk reduction and management techniques, to ensure a fully supportive, effective and equal process.
