The ProVention Consortium is a global coalition of international organisations, governments, the private sector, civil society organisations and academic institutions dedicated to increasing the safety of vulnerable communities and to reducing the impacts of disasters in developing countries. It provides a forum for multi-stakeholder dialogue on disaster risk reduction and a framework for collective action.

ProVention aims to advance disaster risk management in developing countries by forging partnerships and linkages; advocating among leaders and decision makers for increased policy attention and commitment to reducing natural hazard risks; developing innovative approaches to the practical applications of disaster risk management; and sharing knowledge and resources for organisations, practitioners and communities active in disaster reduction.
