Prevention and Risk Reduction to Build a Sustainable and Resilient World

Statement by the Stakeholder Engagement Mechanism (SEM) of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction

The impact of Covid-19 shows us we’ve not made enough progress on achieving the targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. But what if we had done more before the outbreak?

Covid-19 will challenge our ability to come together to prevent disasters – and that’s a concern for everyone, not just DRR practitioners

By Bijay Kumar, Executive Director

Governments meeting at COP25 must invest more in risk-reduction strategies and minimise the loss and damage experienced by poorer communities - now.

GNDR has joined the Risk-Informed Early Action Partnership (REAP), a global initiative to protect one billion people at-risk from extreme weather and climate-related disasters like floods, heatwaves and typhoons.

Would you like your community’s voice to be heard at the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction?

GNDR has contributed to bringing community voices to high level discussions, and “everyday disasters” onto the global agenda. GNDR’s consistent focus on global advocacy has yielded clear results, and the network is now recognised as a key player in DRR.
