G20 Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group

G20 Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group
Established under India’s Presidency of the G20 in 2023, the Working Group aims to integrate disaster risk reduction across the work of the G20 and in its support to developing countries.

Through sharing expertise and good practices and the development of guidance documents and common approaches, the Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group supports G20 countries to develop and implement national policies that reduce risk today and build resilience against future shocks and to promote disaster risk reduction in the work of international financial institutions and across the global financial system.

The Working Group’s activities focus on five high-impact areas for disaster risk reduction:

  • Universal Coverage or Early Warning Systems
  • Disaster and Climate Resilient Infrastructure
  • Financing Frameworks for Disaster Risk Reduction
  • Disaster Recovery, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
  • Nature-Based Solutions and Ecosystem-Based Approaches for Disaster Risk Reduction

The Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group is supported by a range of knowledge partners and international organizations, with UNDRR taking the role of Lead Knowledge Partner.
