The GDN website is a continuing work in progress. Thanks to support from USAID/OFDA, USDA, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), UNISDR PreventionWeb, Northumbria University, School of the Built and Natural Environment and our many volunteers, we are expanding the GDN and making it more dynamic. We have many plans, some of which can be enacted now, others will have to wait for further sponsorship. Please visit In the Pipeline to see a description of some of the ideas we have for the future.
The GDN remains a space populated by its members and welcomes contributions of relevant materials/events/announcements for publication in the website and suggestions to improve the Network.
GDN is seeking partners and supporters to further its advocacy in gendering disaster risk reduction. Please email us at: gdngdnonline.org to explore potential collaborations.
