Why is conflict neglected in disaster risk reduction?

24 Oct 2017, Concern Worldwide

The Sendai Framework does not address conflict even though more than half of all lives lost in disaster occur in fragile states. One of the reasons given is that conflict is too political and contentious to be included, and that its inclusion would make it harder for countries to reach an agreement and make commitments.
