The Crisis Lookout Coalition

Change doesn’t happen overnight

Through consultation, we plan to build a truly global coalition that provides innovative solutions and is inclusive of the wide range of actors required to make a system that is fit for purpose.

Focusing on the core values of impartiality, quality, creativity and empowerment, the coalition aims to make valuable contributions to a more protective environment for crisis impacted communities now, and in years to come.

Help us grow

The success and failure of the coalition rests on the strength of a local to global partnership. The Crisis Lookout team is inviting organisations and individuals to register interest in being part of both the consultation on upcoming work ahead of the G7, and to join us as a partner.

We are interested in hearing from individuals and groups with experience of living in and responding to a crisis, along with policy experts, academics, practitioners, and technical specialists with an interest in disaster risk financing and reduction, climate change, and other relevant disciplines.

The first round of regional consultations will begin in February. Please register your interest below.

Together we are committed to stopping risks from becoming disasters.
