We Coordinate

We coordinate international efforts in DRR and guide, monitor as well as report regularly on the progress of the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action. We organize a biennial Global Platform on disaster risk reduction with leaders and decision makers to advance risk reduction policies and support the establishment of regional, national and thematic platforms.
