Views from the Frontline 2019

Orissa State Volunteers and Social Workers Association (OSVSWA) is working as the National Coordinating Organisation (NCO) for India by the Global Network of CSOs for Disaster Reduction (GNDR) for implementing the Views from the Frontline 2019 (VFL 2019) in India .

Views from the Frontline 2019

Views from the Frontline (VFL) 2019 aims to strengthen the inclusion and collaboration between at- risk people, civil society and governments in the design and implementation of policies and practices to reduce risks and strengthen resilience. This is done by measuring and directly implementing actions to support progress towards achieving an inclusive ‘people-centred’ approach to resilience-building.

All the global development frameworks refer to the importance of including local actors; however, they fail to recognise the importance of monitoring the targets of global frameworks; especially monitoring SFDRR targets. VFL 2019 therefore fills this gap by providing complimentary monitoring, baseline and data to help guide actors to more effectively achieve the targets of the post- 2015 development frameworks, especially the SFDRR, strengthening the accountability of governments, intergovernmental agencies and all other stakeholders to local communities and their resilience priorities.

Following are the identified communities wherein VFL 2019 in India will be implemented:

1. Bihar: Patna and Purnia (5 communities)
2. Gujarat: Kutch and Banaskantha (3 communities)
3. Odisha: Jagatsinghpur and Koraput (5 communities)
4. Sikkim: North Sikkim (2 communities)

Orissa State Volunteers and Social Workers Association (OSVSWA) invites applications from not-for-profit organisations to implement VFL 2019 as Partner Organisations. Please note that the selected Partner Organisation will have to pass through GNDR London's anti-terrorism databases and it’s principles.
