Any risk has got to be reduced if not eliminated totally
Disaster Risks lead to DISASTERS- highly unfortunate surely
October Thirteenth today is International Day for
Disaster Risk Reduction. Let us by all means try to eliminate!
Disaster risk governance’ is the theme of this year’s
International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction in the year
When a great number of people have died and fallen ill
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s International Day
For Disaster Risk Reduction is all about governance.
International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction aims to promote
A global culture of risk awareness and disaster reduction.
The day observes how people and communities around the world
Are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about
The importance of reining in the risks that they face.
We can measure good disaster risk governance
In lives saved, reduced numbers of disaster-affected people,
And reduced economic losses. Covid-19 and the climate emergency
Tell us that we need a clear vision, plans, and competent, empowered
Institutions acting on scientific evidence for the public good.
Let us make earnest efforts in this regard for the good of the society a part of the world!
