The GNDR Secretariat is celebrating the 2016 IDDR by publishing two blogs:
- We need more media coverage of disaster prevention:
aimed at journalists, Marcus Oxley appeals to media and civil society to work together to raise the profile of disaster prevention, as the best means of saving lives.
- Where’s the cash for disaster risk reduction? Are our stories not convincing enough?:
aimed at donors and civil society, this thought piece raises the need to demonstrate the benefits of DRR with more than just impacting stories.
The Secretariat also joined UNISDR in a massive Thunderclap raising awareness of the need to increase efforts in saving lives through prevention, so more and more people will #LiveToTell. The Secretariat was part of this social media collective action that gathered 299 supporters and had a social media reach of 21,129,574 individuals worldwide.
