Disaster Risk Reduction

At-a-Glance

Increasing human population, an increasing concentration of people in urban centres, and a growing frequency of extreme weather events all mean that the impacts of natural disasters are increasing. In 2015, national leaders signed up to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which puts the application of science and technology at the heart of efforts to reduce the impacts of natural disasters (so-called disaster risk reduction, DRR). IAP has engaged with international efforts in DRR, including in the preparation of the Sendai Framework, signing up to the the Scientific and Technical Partnership of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) for the implementation of the Sendai Framework. 

Below is a list of relevant meetings, projects, press releases, programs, articles, statements, reports, forums etc. related to disaster risk reduction. This listing does not contain all IAP website content; items are selected for inclusion based on – how recently they have been posted and - their popularity among site visitors
