The changing role of Civil Organisastions in Society

Conceptualise and create awareness

A fundamental shift is needed: away from reacting to disasters and conflicts as they unfold and sometimes linger for decades, towards prevention, preparedness and empowerment of individuals and communities to withstand and recover from them.

The statistics are staggering:

More than a billion people alive today have seen their lives upended by crisis. Right now, more people are displaced by crisis than at any time since the cataclysm of the Second World War: an estimated 59.5 million. Natural disasters now affect 200 million people a year. For some, the setbacks are temporary. For others, they may consume a lifetime.

Urbanization is reshaping our world and the nature of humanitarian crises and response. For the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities). A billion people around the world today live in slums. It is predicted that one in three people in the world will be living in a slum 30 years from now (Slum Summit Dubai 2013).

It is imperative, in this changing world, that civil organisations change their business model to ensure their survival and continuance of the services and support that they provide. At the same time Corporates need to spend CSI funding more 'intelligently'.

A closer cohesive, strategic working relationship between Government, Corporates and Civil Organisations is required, which will play a major role in forcing this necessary change.
