DISASTER RISK REDUCTION & RESPONSE

Rescue Global intends to live in a world where disasters are less frequent, less impactful and are responded to by national or regional resources in order to reduce the negative impacts which an international response can sometimes have, such as disempowering a country in the long term, whilst providing much needed relief in the short term

ACTIVITY

OPERATION COGNITUS - RESPONSE TO THE EARTHQUAKES IN NEPAL, MAY 2015

Nepal, May 2015, in response to the devastating 7.8 MT earthquake that struck Nepal on 25 April some 81km from the capital Kathmandu, Rescue Global immediately activated our Crisis and Disaster Resilience Alliance (CaDRA).

Instead of deploying a field team to this event, Rescue Global chose to deploy and support members of CaDRA, as well as directly empower the decision making organisations responding to this event. This has been the most strategic of Rescue Global's missions to date. Read more
