Rebuilding Economies After Disaster: chambers of commerce lead the way
Chambers of commerce are often the first to respond when disaster strikes.
They are a natural network that possesses important connections, contacts and local knowledge that can be utilized, acting quickly to transmit aid and support to their communities where and when it's needed the most.
Reaching beyond their individual neighbourhoods, the global network of chambers, with the support of their local business communities, helps rebuild disaster affected communities close to and far from their own shores, bringing not only immediate assistance when disaster strikes, but remaining and working with local stakeholders to reconstruct and bring back economic prosperity to communities. This page is dedicated to some of the projects and partnerships carried out by chambers of commerce to highlight the important work that they undertake. Links to project websites and project summaries are included to ensure that others can learn from such projects and contribute to the work of chambers of commerce worldwide.
