Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction



Leaders and representatives from some 165 governments are gathering in Geneva this week for a pivotal disaster risk reduction conference. They will be urged to “invest today for a safer tomorrow” or face much harder decisions in the years to come.


The aim is to reach a common understanding on a series of measurable and sustainable disaster risk reduction actions with a focus on four vital areas: increased investment; integration of disaster risk reduction into climate change adaptation and development planning; acceleration of community resilience and livelihood protection; a programme to accelerate disaster-proofing of public buildings—especially schools and hospitals.
