Disaster Risk Reduction
To keep up with the pace of present frequency and intensity of disaster, IGSSS has established Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) team in the year 2010.
The Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) program of IGSSS is designed towards protecting lives, livelihoods and assets including natural resources of vulnerable communities from the impact of hazards. It focuses on risk reduction and mainstreaming itself with all other programs focusing on other issues as well. An Emergency Intervention Fund (ELF) and Emergency Response Team (ERT) have been set up in IGSSS for immediate response to disasters.
