Disaster risk reduction and the International Federation

At its core, disaster risk reduction is about reducing human vulnerability and strengthening resilience to the risks posed by natural hazards. Moreover, disaster risk reduction concerns the collective ability of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to deliver on its Global Agenda, which commits to “reduce the number of deaths, injuries and impact from disasters”. This paper, therefore, while providing an overview of the global context will seek to explain what disaster risk reduction means for the International Federation and to set out a framework to help the 185 member National Societies make communities safer and more resilient to disasters. Published in 2006.
