WHAT WE DO
OUR FOCUS AREAS
Disaster Risk Management
Since its inception, Doers has been active in the practice, research and advocacy for different issues related to disaster risk reduction. Besides our own programmatic interventions, we also contribute towards building the institutional capacities for disaster risk management in Himachal Pradesh. We promote and advocate for disaster risk governance which has localization, inclusion and systems-thinking at its core.
Climate Change Adaptation
We recognize the additional risk posed by climate change to the already fragile ecosystems and vulnerable communities in the Himalayan region. In order to foster risk-informed development, Doers strives to integrate climate change adaptation into development planning and programs. We support government departments and NGOs in planning for climate change adaptation in Himachal Pradesh.
Fixing the gaps in humanitarian response capacities in Himachal Pradesh, Doers has been strengthening the humanitarian response coordination in the state. We develop the capacities of Inter Agency Groups on humanitarian response coordination, basic and advance life support, psycho-social support, protecting the most vulnerable, ensuring the minimum standards of relief, etc.
