The Global Partnership for Preparedness will support countries to reach an essential level of readiness, so that situations do not spiral out of control and development gains are not lost when hazards strike. The partnership will strengthen preparedness capacities initially in 15 countries, so they attain a minimum level of readiness by 2020 for future disaster risks mainly caused by climate change. The partnership also answers to the call of the UN Secretary-General to enhance the emergency response capacity of the 20 highest risk countries by 2020.
