Disaster Risk and Reduction
At HOPE we believe on conserving natural resources including forests, water, wild life and agriculture at a community and policy level through different interventions and service deliveries. HOPE also strives to protect the environment at local, national and global levels through advocating public awareness, research, participatory learning and networking.
Goal 13 calls for urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. It is intrinsically linked to all 16 of the other Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in Pakistan.
HOPE promotes risk reduction in communities through mobilization and capacity building. In order to respond to Natural and man-made disasters , HOPE has conducted various sessions on capacity building on DRR, organized awareness campaigns, and has benefited victims through cash grants, provision of shelter, food, water, sanitation, and hygiene to remote areas of Pakistan.
HOPE is helping communities, and local organizations to increase their resilience through community-driven efforts led by local leaders. Together, we develop a complete picture of the social, environmental, and economic threats they face and engage them with other local organizations and individuals who share the threat to learn about best practices and then implement locally-led solutions that tackle immediate problems while strengthening the community overall.
