Local Leadership for Global Impact
A member-led network
GNDR is the largest international network of civil society organisations working to strengthen resilience and reduce risk in communities.
We connect frontline civil society organisations with national and international policymaking institutions and governments. We influence policies and practices by amplifying the voices of people most at risk.
This member-led global network strategy will guide our collective work for the next five years.
