[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Businesses and private sector” list_icon=”Defaults-truck”]Protecting your business or workplace ensures that your business can keep operating when faced with crises. This protects job security for you and your colleagues and helps ensure the continuity of services that local communities rely on. Addressing risks together with others in the community can reduce threats to your business and strengthen local resilience at the same time.

[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Schools” list_icon=”Defaults-bank institution university”]Schools provide important opportunities for learning about safety, health, and well-being. They also need to protect their students, teachers, and staff and the services they provide to communities (e.g. emergency sheltering).

[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Community organisations” list_icon=”Defaults-group users”]Community organisations, including local service organisations, religious organisations, and local social or business networks, also play key roles in providing services that communities rely on that should be protected.

[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Identify solutions” list_icon=”Defaults-search-plus”]

  1. Strengthening resilience often requires combined solutions.
  2. The right combination provides an opportunity to link different organizations’ activities to create a whole-of-society approach.
  3. Sharing solutions on sites like the 1BC website enables others to adapt & apply them.

[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Create a campaign to mobilise around the solutions” list_icon=”Defaults-comments-o”]

  1. Plan to mobilize people and communities as a part of the solution.

  3. Identify opportunities for local resourcing to sustain solutions.

[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Advocate to influence wider decision-making” list_icon=”Defaults-microphone”]

  1. Identify which solutions can be undertaken by direct action.

[/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Record your contributions” list_icon=”Defaults-edit pencil-square-o”]

  1. Identify a 1BC target for your country, city, or district. Following the 1 person per household goal, some countries are setting their own target of households to reach to determine their national or local share of the 1 billion people target.
  2. Record the contributions of your current program activities toward the 1BC goals. 1BC contributions will also be cross-referenced toward the SDGs and the Localization agenda of the Grand Bargain.
  3. Check back for new tools on recording individual contributions which are in development.
