"From Grassroots to Global: People-Centered Disaster Risk Reduction"
Organized in partnership with the IFRC Zonal Office in Panamá, the 2008 Forum fostered cross-disciplinary
and cross-regional linkages and learning by bringing ProVention partners and relevant stakeholders together
from around the globe. In addition, the Annual Forum aimed to produce recommendations for government
authorities and international actors on how to support bottom-up change related to DRR, and to inform the
strategic direction and work plan development of the ProVention Secretariat for 2009 and beyond.
