Disaster Risk Reduction

Climate change is projected to increase the occurrences and intensities of natural hazards. Disaster Risk Reduction (or DRR) is a means of adapting to this reality that relies on preventive measures as the most effective means of ensuring these hazards do not evolve into full-fledged disasters. It requires input from every part of society, and includes a wide range of adaptation activities, such risk and vulnerability assessments, and strengthening climate information and early warning systems.
