India is a multi-hazard prone country and the bruises of climate change are also explicit. As a nation we are striving hard to battle our vulnerabilities and reduce our risks, and as the Sendai Framework suggests, the responsibility of disaster risk reduction lies with all of the society, ‘all-of-us’. More than 50% of the population, presently, is of youth and young professionals. Can’t this huge demographic dividend be leveraged? Can’t the immense skills and potentials within this section of the society be benefited from?
“The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people.” - Kailash Satyarthi
This is what inspired the formation of CRRP India!
Confederation of Risk Reduction Professionals in India is a national platform for the youth and young professionals working in the field of disaster risk reduction, risk management, climate change adaptation and analogous fields to come together and disrupt the status quo and innovate their way towards a disaster resilient sustainable development.
CRRP is also a founding member of Uinspire Alliance and signatory to the declaration of UInspire alliance for the cooperation in SETI for DRR & CC in Asia Pacific Region.
