Humanitarian emergency and disaster risk reduction advisory

Our commitment

Disasters and their impacts on hard won development gains are predicted to intensify. Managing these risks and building resilience is fundamental to sustained development. When emergencies do occur, successful humanitarian interventions are about saving lives, alleviating suffering and maintaining dignity during the aftermath of man-made crisis and natural disaster.

Aurecon’s approach creates closer links between development and humanitarian programs, fosters respect for humanitarian law, and meets the safety requirements of humanitarian workers. Assisting governments and communities to develop their own capacity to reduce the risk and impact of disasters is integral. Aurecon also works to strengthen international, regional and local partnerships to enable the rapid mobilisation of resources. We incorporate gender and social inclusion into all planning, design, response, monitoring and evaluation of interventions.
