Investments in improving a country's disaster
preparedness capabilities can help reduce damage
and save lives. A significant portion
of our effort is devoted to enhancing disaster preparedness
in countries especially vulnerable.
We fund the training of international participants who attend workshops,
seminars, and conferences. We promote institution building by strengthening
disaster preparedness programs. We support projects designed to provide
advanced warning of an approaching tsunami,
typhoon, or famine. Through our activities,
we help countries better cope with disasters.
