Urban risk reduction and resilience


This brochure presents the third of five Programmes aimed to improve coherence, focus, depth and efficiency in delivering the results of UNISDR Strategic Framework: Towards 2025. This Programme will address one of the key underlying drivers of disaster risk: poor urban governance. By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in urban areas. As cities continue to grow, exposure of lives, livelihoods and economic, social and environmental assets is set to increase exponentially. The local level is the frontline of addressing disaster risk and is where significant gains can be made.
