Reducing risks, saving lives

Source(s):  Save the Children International (SCI)

This booklet addresses disaster risk reduction (DRR) as any activity carried out by a village, community, aid agency or government that helps vulnerable communities, and especially children, to prepare for, reduce the impact of, or prevent disasters. It details preparedness, early warning, mitigation, and promotion of resilience activities and gives recommendations to move forward in DRR countries' programmes.
