Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction 2009
The GAR 2009 is the first biennial global assessment of disaster risk reduction prepared in context of the implementation of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR). The ISDR, launched in 2000, provides a framework to coordinate actions to address disaster risks at the local, national, regional and international levels. The Hyogo Framework for Action for Action 2005-2015 (HFA), endorsed by 168 UN member states at the World Conference on Disaster Reduction in Kobe, Japan in 2005, urges all countries to make major efforts to reduce their disaster risk by 2015.
There are 6 Appendices to the 2009 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction, found below or in the CD-ROM accompanying the Report.
