Yes, United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) invites not profit-making organizations to submit grant proposals that focus on the project Building Back Better from COVID-19 in the Arab States by Applying the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and Enabling a Prevention-Oriented and Risk-Informed Approach.
The Sendai Framework considers a broader definition of risk, beyond natural hazards, and calls for the incorporation of biological hazard management and building resilient health systems. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the systemic nature of risk; the early and aggressive lockdown measures implemented in some parts of the Arab States region have caused a severe socioeconomic impact in these countries, which in turn increases vulnerability to the variety of natural and man-made hazards.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 06-Jul-21.
