Company A developed a partnership with a First Nation community who experiences natural disasters on a regular basis. Company A works with Indigenous communities around the world to help build relationships, solve problems, and create a more transparent business.
Company A brought on RIC because the company did not have the internal subject matter expertise to identify and plan for the socio-economic, socio-environmental, and psycho-social impacts that disasters have on the community.
Without this deep knowledge, Company A would not be able to achieve the objectives of a larger disaster risk management project to help build the community’s resilience to natural and man-made disasters.
The future is exciting for the First Nation community because they can implement their disaster resilience roadmap knowing that this was a community led project, with support and insight from subject matter experts.
This approach has helped the community, so they are prepared for any climate related disaster, while also protecting culturally significant sites, and maintaining Traditional Knowledge (TK).
