GFDRR’s Strategy for 2013-2015 expresses its vision as “A world where resilient societies manage and adapt to emerging disaster risks and the human and economic impacts of disasters are reduced.”1 Strengthening GFDRR’s ability to scale up civil society engagement, community resilience and gender aspects of disaster risk management (DRM) is critical. Through its Inclusive Community Resilience initiative, GFDRR will leverage country investment programs that work directly with poor communities; support civil society and broader citizen engagement in disaster risk management (DRM) for accountability; and continue to use GFDRR’s and the World Bank’s role as convener to support community level innovations and promote voice of vulnerable communities in national and global DRM policy dialogue.
