We are looking for an individual or collective who loves visualizing and mobilizing (literally) simple ideas towards a powerful message. We’d like to work with one who is passionate about change to save more lives and build back better as disasters become more predictable.
The challenge is to popularise the idea of inclusive community-based disaster risk reduction (ICBDRR) or that which facilitates the meaningful participation and accounts for the specific needs and capacities of women, children, persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and those in remote communities — or those who are often marginalized and rendered vulnerable in preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters.
We need not start from scratch. In fact, there are successful models of ICBDRR, along with some facts and figures. There are towns who have consistently done their profiling of community members – based on their income, gender, age and so on.
Villagers have learned how to make sense of weather reports from PAGASA and hazard maps from Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB).
We have seen women, persons with disabilities, elderly actively participate the making of contingency plans – where they not only plot their way towards the evacuation center but indicate what they can contribute before, during and after a typhoon, floods, earthquakes, among others.
And there are local officials who have institutionalised zero casualty policies and have led their communities build back better.
Send us your expression of interest, along with the following on or before 22 January 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
with the reference on the heading: “EOI-video”

I trust that you’ve already seen the “Call for Participation” that we’ve just launched for the Campaign.
We count on your URGENT support to sign up and to mobilize as many organizations, networks and coalitions as possible.
Please, circulate the message below to your mailing lists. It would be great if those that have national and regional offices could also request them to sign as it will show the diversity and complexity of civil society engagement in this process.
