Disaster risk management

The poorest are often the most vulnerable to the impacts of natural disasters. With climate change threatening to increase the frequency of extreme weather events, the challenge facing governments and the international community is how to design and implement effective solutions that can still contribute to sustainable livelihoods.   Risk assessments and risk reduction strategies must be based on in-depth analysis of the likelihood and frequency of extreme events – and all their potential impacts.
