The effect of disasters has increased in comparison to the past, particularly in less developed countries, due to rapid urbanization, climatic changes, and environmental degradation.

The government's commitment to providing for marginalized communities who are unable to meet their basic needs, [...]

Disaster Risk Reduction

Despite international efforts, the increase in natural disaster damage and casualties is growing. Climate change and adaptation, as well as poverty reduction, inclusivity (of women, children, and other vulnerable groups), and sustainable development have all been described as critical factors for such a new disaster risk reduction system, as these are inextricably linked elements of disaster risk reduction.
