Disaster risk reduction (DRR) & Climate Change Adaptation (CCA)
Disaster Risk Reduction is a core element of disaster management, and includes prevention, mitigation and preparedness. For development activities to be sustainable, communities must understand the hazards around them and learn how to reduce their disaster risk. World Vision encourages the building of disaster resilient communities by improving our capacity to deliver DRR and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) programmes across the countries where we work as well as participating in external and internal networks at all levels to share good practices, and coordinate and collaborate effectively to strengthen the resilience of those we serve.

World Vision – Working with communities to prepare
Mother nature helps predict natural disasters, but certainly cannot prepare anyone for them. Preparedness has become more of a valued concept since the Indian Ocean Tsunami; with international recognition of the importance of pre-planning and early-warning systems.
