Description/achievement of initiative

KPMG is committed to developing effective and innovative disaster risk reduction through its Disasters Relief and Emergencies: Framework for Enhanced Capacity (FEC).

Implementation methodologies

KPMG is committed to developing effective and innovative disaster risk reduction through its Disasters Relief and Emergencies: Framework for Enhanced Capacity (FEC). The FEC program aims at working with a global NGO to enhance preparedness and engagement with communities most affected by climate change. KPMG will pilot a new pro bono program by 2013 to support a NGO globally in Disaster Risk Reduction Capacity. The pilot program is sponsored by KPMG member firms in Australia, China, India, Mexico and the USA.

The UN estimates that every dollar spent on what it calls “disaster risk reduction” saves seven dollars that otherwise would be spent on aid after emergencies. Leveraging our global wealth of skills, resources and capacities, KPMG firms are spearheading a new approach to working with the humanitarian sector with the aim of benefitting the wider community in disaster risk reduction. Using an integrated approach, KPMG will develop a new centrally held disaster relief fund available to financially support disasters within days, continue its program for local, regional and global appeals that provide immediate relief and support for longer term sustainable redevelopment programs, and pilot a new pro bono program to support a NGO globally in Disaster Risk Reduction capacity.
