Advocate for DRR

If you believe that hazards do not have to turn into disasters, add your voice to our campaign and become a DRR advocate.

We cannot prevent an earthquake, but we can make earthquake resistant buildings.

We cannot stop a tsunami, but we can avoid settlements in exposed coastal areas.

We cannot stop a hurricane, but we can have early warning systems so people can evacuate.

Disaster risk is a function of the decisions we make.
