GEM Foundation



The GEM Secretariat is the executive body of the GEM Foundation, and consists of the Technical Office, with its main coordinating body the Executive Committee (GEM's Hazard coordinator, Risk coordinator, IT and MF Managers), and sections dedicated to Coordination and Management, Outreach and Communication, Administration and Services. Through this channel we will post announcements, requests for feedback and technical documents for you to comment on.
