In 2007, the Global Network of Civil Society Organizations for Disaster Reduction (GNDR) was born with a mission to support CSOs around the world make the world a safer place in the face of disasters. Today, GNDR comprises 1,734 organizations from 130 countries.
GNDR was granted USAID BHA funding for the project “Locally-led humanitarian solutions: Building resilience in fragile contexts affected by climate change”. The project will be implemented over the span of 60 months in 11 fragile countries impacted by climate change across Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. The project will be implemented by GNDR members, more specifically 22 CSOs (11 in the first phase, 11 additional CSOs in phase 2), two from each participating country.
GNDR has commissioned IRMA to conduct a baseline assessment for this project, which consists of:
- Completing Indicator Tracking Tables for 21 BHA indicators (aligned with PIRS),
- Gathering non-indicator data to describe country context, including key information about hazards, exposure, vulnerability but also gender, conflict, the state of the nexus and civic space in each country,
- Performing a Capacity Development Needs Assessment of CSOs selected in the first phase.
The methodological approach includes Key informant interviews with GNDR National Focal Points (NFP), HDP Risk Analysis (Infographics), workshops with selected CSOs and a Knowledge, Attitudes, Practice survey.
