(Oct 29) Canada’s Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction
November 22, 2018
At this year’s Annual National Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) held in Vancouver on October 29th, Public Safety Canada unveiled a new online forum on GCcollab—a new Government of Canada website designed to increase collaboration between government and stakeholders. GCcollab is a professional collaboration platform that is open to all Canadians by invitation. The online platform encourages innovative and collaborative ways of identifying and co-creating policy and research. The new GCcollab forum is intended to facilitate DRR-related discussions year-round and to provide a platform through which to advance Circles of Influence in emergency management. The forum contains a number of functions and interactive tools, including: polls, a discussion forum, blogs, group files, links, an event calendar, photo albums and more!
