Reducing Vulnerability and Risk. Strengthening Resilience.

A common thread across Abt’s work around the world is the creation, implementation and analysis of strategies that protect people from risksranging from slow- to sudden-onset disasters—and increase their resilience so they are able to avoid and withstand shocks. Abt applies the principles of risk mitigation and resilience across a wide range of topics, including disaster risk management, food security, health, livelihoods, environmental protection and housing and community development.
