The International Day for Disaster Reduction 2017 celebrates how people and communities around the world are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of reducing the risks they face. IDDR 2017 is targeting a reduction in the number of people affected by disasters globally by 2030, with a slogan this year of Home Safe Home.

In support of the Day, BRE Trust (Building Research Establishment). joined by Catholic Relief Services (CRS), are running a free hour-long webinar which will focus on two main areas which can help reduce the risk and impact of natural hazards on communities.

  • Humanitarian Shelter Solutions – CRS and BRE Humanitarian Demonstration Shelter

  • Holistic Shelter and Settlement Sustainability Resilience Tool – QSAND (Quantifying Sustainability in the Aftermath of Natural Disasters) Tool

If you would like to learn more humanitarian shelter solutions and how the QSAND tool can be used to promote sustainability and resilience after a natural disaster to build a Home Safe Home, please sign up to BRE Trust’ webinar online.

Join QSAND, BRE, and CRS in what is set to be a practical, thought-provoking webinar in support of UNISDR’s International Day for Disaster Reduction 2017!
