Words into Action (WiA) are a series of guidelines, based on global expertise, communities of practice, and networks of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) practitioners. The guidelines provide practical, specific advice on implementing a people-centered approach to DRR in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

All the guides in the series


WiA working groups use a participatory approach that ensures a wide and representative diversity of sources are used. Primarily a knowledge translation product, WiA guides convert a complex set of concepts and information sources into a simplified tool for understanding risk and learning. The guides are also meant to engage and inspire partners and other actors.
