School students attending a World Tsunami Awareness Day Event in New York have called for more educational programmes on disaster risk reduction from an early age to be better informed to prevent and deal with disasters, At the event, organized by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Government of Japan, an upgraded version of the educational game Stop Disasters was also launched.
The New York Liaison Office focuses its efforts on engaging with Member States and other New York based actors to promote disaster risk reduction within the global/UN policy agenda.
Our activities range from monitoring key processes and contributing to meetings within the UN system to liaising with representatives of Member States of the UN and specialized agencies in New York.
We partner with a variety of NY-based actors and provide them with substantive support on disaster risk reduction.
