Local Leadership for Disaster Resilience – Profiles from Asia and the Pacific
As disaster risks are growing more intense, complex, and unpredictable, it calls for a new approach to resilience building and planning. This is a challenge that cannot be addressed by formal institutions alone. Local leaders often possess the capacity to innovate and have a strong understanding of local systems, politics, and culture.

PwCIF and SEEDS Collaboration for humanitarian action
Collaboration for Humanitarian Action traces the journey of SEEDS’ work in partnership with PwC India Foundation in diverse disaster contexts and geographies over the last 5 years and draws lessons from this experience to inspire others in the sector to nurture more such collaborative efforts.

Featured Cause

Over 30 million people have been affected due to floods in India this year. The states of Assam and Bihar have experienced the worst flooding over the last ten years, affecting over 10.5 million people and claiming more than 80 lives.

SEEDS is promptly reaching out to affected families in the districts of Golaghat, Lakhimpur, Dhemaji, Barpeta and Morigaon in Assam and district Saharsa in Bihar. Based on the information from SEEDS volunteers on ground, there is an urgent need for safe drinking water, dry food, and hygiene kits including key items required for COVID-19 safety.

With extensive damage to houses, affected families need to start rebuilding from day one, in order to have a roof above their heads. This is critical given the continued rains in these areas. Immediate support for repairing homes and getting basic home utilities are thus the next priorities that we are helping impacted families with.

“We enable the most vulnerable to build a safer future”

OUR WORK

Building resilient communities through a holistic and inclusive approach

Humanitarian Response

When disasters strike, we reach out to those who go unseen. Each response is unique and tailored to ground realities. It’s about saving lives and minimising the impact of secondary disasters.

Building Back Better

Every rebuilding effort is an effort to leave behind new capacity and skills, not just safer buildings. We focus on homes, schools and community infrastructure; and their surrounding ecosystems.

Reducing Future Risk

Disasters are morphing and new risks are emerging. How do you reduce the impact of the next big emergency (or multiple smaller ones)? We work with communities to plan, build response capacity, mitigate daily risks, and adapt to climate change impacts.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Our work over the years has reached a broad cross-section of people. We’ve sparked hope through innovative buildings, nature-based solutions, new skills and children’s smiles across India and Nepal. Some of our outreach includes the following.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Affected people at the centre. A commitment to quality and core humanitarian standards.
Sustainability at every step. Long-term thinking. Local action with global influence.
These are the values that drive all of our work.

We hold ourselves accountable to our supporters, partners and the communities that we serve.
