Arab strategy for disaster risk reduction 2030

The Arab Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (ASDRR) was adopted by virtue of the League of Arab States Resolution at the Summit Level No. (S.S 733 G.O (29)- E 3- 15/04/2018) in the Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 15 April 2018.

The ASDRR will complement on-going efforts by technical national, regional and international institutions to reduce the risks of disasters in the region. The main themes of the ASDRR comprise: 1) Understanding disaster risk; 2) Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk; 3) Investing in disaster risk reduction to increase resilience; and 4) Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.

The themes represent the general framework through which activities, programs and mechanisms for action will be developed in line with the different capacities and needs of participating countries and specialized regional organizations, supported by development partners. The expected outcome of the ASDRR is to achieve a substantial reduction of disaster losses of lives and property at the social, economic and environmental levels in communities and countries of the Arab region.
