Uniting Nations, People and Action for Resilience

UN and DRR

Featured Organization: WMO

The vast majority of disasters are linked to high-impact weather and hydrological events as well as climate extremes, including rapid-onset hazards such as tropical cyclones and slow-onset hazards such as droughts. Disaster risk reduction is, therefore, at the core of the mission of WMO and the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) of its 191 Member States and Territories. More about WMO

United Nations Plan of Action on Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience

Collective action by the UN system is critical to ensure that disaster risk is reduced, a fact underlined in the Sendai Framework and its linked post-2015 agreements, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The revised UN Plan of Action, approved in April this year, represents an opportunity for the United Nations system to actively work towards the Sustainable Development Goals as one body.
