Mission

An International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction, beginning on 1 January 1990, was launched by the United Nations, following the adoption of Resolution 44/236 (22 December 1989). The Decade was intended to reduce, through concerted international action, especially in developing countries, loss of life, poverty damage and social and economic disruption caused by natural disasters. To support the activities of the Decade, a Secretariat was established at the United Nations Office in Geneva, in close association with UNDRO. As the successor to the IDNDR, UNISDR continues enabling communities to become resilient to the effects of natural, technological and environmental hazards and reducing the compound risks they pose to social and economic vulnerabilities within modern societies.
