Public Sector

D
We work with the public sector to mainstream disaster risk resilience and climate change adaptation measures into emergency planning and response programs. Disaster risk reduction is critical to policies for sustainable economic development. We place particular emphasis on building capacity to be responsive to small enterprises, which account for more than half of all global employment. We have worked for states as large as California and as small as Rhode Island. We have partnered with the Small Business Development Centers to deliver programs throughout the states of Texas, Louisiana and Pennsylvania.

We work with governments world-wide, including a recent project for capacity building in the Caribbean and advising on disaster risk governance measures for the emergency management agency of Turkey. We are particularly proud of our work for the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) which is the focal point for all United Nations agencies and organizations working on disaster risk reduction and humanitarian response, from the UN Environment Program to the World Bank.
