DRR needs a wide of range of expertise
Disaster risk management is a sector that has more than 50 years of existence. It has allowed for both the creation of new professions such as disaster risk managers as well as the adaptation of existing ones in other sectors such as urban planning or insurance.
Working hand in hand with the 2030 Agenda, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 is the roadmap for how we make our communities safer and more resilient to disasters.
As the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, UNDRR brings governments, partners and communities together to reduce disaster risk and losses and to ensure a safer, sustainable future.
