Nature-Based Solutions For Disaster Risk Reduction
Some of the most important risks we faced today are climate-related: extreme weather, biodiversity loss and environmental disasters. The rising risks can be reduced through working with nature rather than against it; a concept known as Nature-Based Solutions (NBS). NBS such as green parks, rejuvenated waterbodies, restored wetlands can minimise damage by absorbing stormwater, reducing flood risks and safeguarding freshwater ecosystems. In addition, NBS keep cities cooler during the summer, support flora & fauna, and promote people’s mental and physical health. By implementing NBS, through our work at SEEDS, we aim to restore degraded ecosystems, develop climate change adaptation and mitigation and improve risk management and resilience. Know more

Subhash Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar 2021
SEEDS has been awarded with the prestigious Subhash Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar 2021 by the Government of India, to recognise and honour our contribution in the area of Disaster Management. SEEDS has worked on the frontlines towards making communities disaster-ready. The organisation has been actively engaging with the local leaders to build community resilience at large.

SEEDS, on a mission to SAVE LIVES!
Aligning with the vision of reaching out to the most underprivileged communities who comprise the bottom 1% and are disproportionately impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic, SEEDS designed its Covid-19 second wave response. Our efforts are focused to Share The Burden on our healthcare system. As part of the initiative, we are establishing covid care centres with essential isolation services in several districts across India, running a mass vaccination drive especially focused on vaccine adoption in the rural areas and also running a 24×7 National helpline ‘Relief Frontline’ to provide verified leads on specific covid care services.

SEEDS Strategy 2030
The increase in climate-induced disasters is now inevitable. Research conducted by SEEDS found that there are at least 200 climate hotspots that will put the lives of more than 300 million people at risk by 2030. These areas will experience damage in extreme scale and frequency. With Strategy 2030, SEEDS envisions resilient pathways which will enable at-risk communities to bounce back after a disaster, locally adapt their living to absorb the impact of such events and better prepare for the future. Our approach will create an ecosystem of progress to attain sustainable development goals which enables vulnerable communities to be less dependent on external assistance. Know More


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


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.


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:

Total Lives Touched

School Children Trained

Schools & Aanganwadis Built, Repaired & Restored

Shelters Built

Emergencies Responded

Indian States/UTs Covered


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.
