Disaster Risk Reduction: Multisectoral Guidance
Natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or tsunamis can trigger disasters when coupled with vulnerability and inadequate measures to mitigate their impacts. These disasters affect millions of people worldwide each year. However, the impact of natural hazards can be reduced through proactive, systematic efforts to analyze and decrease the causal factors of disasters. This collection contains practical and operational guides, handbooks, guidelines, and toolkits from various organisations on disaster risk reduction in order to better aid humanitarians and other practitioners in disaster management, preparedness, and building resilience. These resources help aid people and communities worldwide in reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of reining in the risks they face. Although it is impossible to eliminate disaster risk completely, prevention and preparedness can greatly improve the resilience of local communities.
