UN Conference Risk ReductionAs of today, there are only 44 days until the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction from March 14 to 18 in Sendai City, Japan, and DRI will be there!

Another milestone: This week 10 years ago, the last World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction adopted the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 (HFA): Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters.

“The Hyogo Framework for Action has laid solid foundations for building resilience to disasters,” said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

You can see some of the HFA success stories on this YouTube channel — and upload your own.
