The German resilience strategy includes the establishment of a national platform to strengthen cooperation between a wide range of disaster risk management stakeholders. This measure gave rise to the “National Platform for Strengthening Resilience to Disasters”, which has now begun its work.

The platform consists of various networks – DKKV is part of the “Civil Society” network. Last week, the network met for the first time and, among other things, elected the representatives who will consult with the representatives of the other networks in the implementation advisory board. We are delighted that DKKV Managing Director Dr. Benni Thiebes was elected as a representative and is therefore part of the Implementation Advisory Board!

The Implementation Advisory Board will meet for the first time at the Disaster Risk Reduction symposium in April.
