Reducing Vulnerability and Risk. Strengthening Resilience.

A common thread in Abt’s work around the world is that we help reduce people’s vulnerability to a variety of risks as we strengthen their capacity to recover from disasters and other challenges. Abt develops and analyzes strategies, then implements them as we apply the principles of risk mitigation and resilience across a wide range of disciplines. Our areas of expertise include disaster risk management, food security, health, livelihoods, environmental protection, climate impacts and housing and community development.
