Protecting people and community prosperity.
We are collaborating with countries around the world to reduce immense human suffering and stifling economic losses caused by disasters. For more than 20 years, we have applied our science and technology and forged public-private partnerships to support community resilience, informed policies, and measurable reductions in risk.
