Responding today, preparing for tomorrow
Island nations are particularly vulnerable to hazards such as violent storms, volcanoes, tsunamis and earthquakes. Even when local capacity to prepare and respond is relatively good, the potential impact and long term consequences can be severe.
Field Ready is working to reduce disaster risk concerns and prepare people for the next disaster. Our aim is to lessen disaster impacts and increase people's resilience. Working with a number of partners including World Vision Australia, DFAT, HitNet, UNICEF, USAID and others, Field Ready is putting not just the necessary elements of a response in place, but also building vital knowledge and skills.
