Mark Your Calendar for #DRRday: Oct. 13 is the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction

October 2, 2019 Leave a comment DRI Admin

The International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction promotes a global culture of risk-awareness and disaster reduction every 13th of October. The 2019 theme: Reduce disaster damage to critical infrastructure and disruption of basic services.

This year will focus on Target (d) of the Sendai Framework: “Substantially reduce disaster damage to critical infrastructure and disruption of basic services, among them health and education facilities, including through developing their resilience by 2030.”

Given the high death tolls, notably in earthquakes and tsunamis, it is especially important that great care is taken to ensure that schools and hospitals are built to last by ensuring that location and hazard-appropriate planning regulations and building codes are enforced. Other areas of critical infrastructure which help to achieve other Sendai Framework targets include potentially life-saving utilities and services such as food and water supply, energy, telecommunications and transport.
