In a context marked by ever-increasing humanitarian, climatic and health challenges, PIROI has set itself an ambitious target: that of reducing the impact of natural hazard-related disasters, health crises, and climate change for south-west Indian Ocean communities.

The programme that was established is the result of joint discussions with all PIROI members and aims to improve the quality of assistance provided to vulnerable communities. Implementing this strategy is part of the regional cooperation efforts PIROI and its partners have been undertaking for the past 22 years.

This strategic framework takes into account the achievements of PIROI’s 2017–2020 plan of action, and is integrated into the Movement’s various strategies for the next period, including its strategic commitments for 2030 and FRC’s 2021–2025 international strategy, as well as the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies’ “Strategy 2030”.

PIROI’s 2021–2025 strategic framework focuses on four areas:

Goal 1

Disaster risk management stakeholders have better knowledge and expertise of risks related to natural hazards, health crises, and climate change

Goal 2

Disaster risk management stakeholders capacities are strengthened to manage risks related to natural hazards, health crises, and climate change

Goal 3

People of the south-west Indian Ocean are well-informed, more resilient, and better prepared to face the risks related to natural hazards, health crises, and climate change

Goal 4

Communities affected by natural disasters and health crisis have access to emergency assistance that meets their priority needs

PIROI will focus on an enabling action in order to implement its 2021–2025 strategy, namely creating the PIROI Center: a regional centre for expertise, training and innovation. This project will help PIROI to be responsive to the ever-changing development of its activities, and to face the growing challenges of disaster risk management in the region.
