Join us at #DRRLive to break down barriers and work together to advance inclusive disaster risk reduction worldwide!

As the world grapples with an increasing number of disaster risks due to climate change, demographic changes and environmental degradation, the imperative for an inclusive disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategy has never been more critical. Minority and other marginalised groups have been shown time and time again to be at most risk during disasters. Climate change looks to exacerbate this trend. 

On a regional basis, the situation marginalised groups find themselves in can vary widely depending on cultural, economic and societal challenges. Whilst international frameworks focus on a global approach to inclusivity and a leave-no-one-behind ethos, the regional variations often mean implementation of these global goals is faced with difficulties not experienced in other parts of the world.

With the recent launch of the Central Asia Inclusive DRR Network (CAIDRRN) and planned launches for similar regional networks over the coming year, these differences should now be looked at and considered. Not only in terms of how differences impact a shared goal of inclusive DRR, but also the opportunities for learning that comes from understanding regional differences and variations to disaster risk reduction and management.
