Terminology

The UNISDR Terminology aims to promote a common understanding and usage of disaster risk reduction concepts and to assist the disaster risk reduction efforts of authorities, practitioners and the public.

Look up terms from the official UNISDR terminology on disaster risk reduction in English, below, or download the terminology in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.

Note: The 2009 terminology was updated following the request of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (paragraph 50), which recommended the establishment of an open-ended intergovernmental expert working group.
