As a partnership, the PRP is set up to enable members to pool their resources, capacities and expertise to jointly address and drive resilience action at national, sub national, regional and international levels; coming together under a single umbrella mechanism in a coordinated and cohesive manner. The PRP is multi-disciplinary and includes actors that work in sectors including social science and gender, physical and social vulnerabilities, climate change, disaster risk management, finance, engineering, science, ecosystems etc.
