Disaster Resilience Journal: 42 Days of Disaster Resilience

Since 22 September 2014, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the European Commission have been publishing daily stories of resilient people around the globe via social media, blogs and word of mouth in their new "Disaster Resilience Journal" media campaign.

For 42 days, the Disaster Resilience Journal will tell the stories of how communities in 24 different countries prepare for disasters, such as building safer shelters in Haiti and in the Philippines, terracing to avoid soil erosion in Rwanda, carrying out evacuation drills in Bangladesh and planting vegetable gardens in Mauritania’s desert. The Journal will show the difference made for vulnerable people by the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies with financial support from the European Union.
