Disaster Risk Reduction

Disaster Risk Reduction

The policy objective of anticipating and reducing risk is called disaster risk reduction (DRR). Although often used interchangeably with DRR, disaster risk management (DRM) can be thought of as the implementation of DRR, since it describes the actions that aim to achieve the objective of reducing risk.

Disaster risk is an indicator of poor development, so reducing disaster risk requires integrating DRR policy and DRM practice into sustainable development goals

The following broad services are provided by AAS under DRR services.

• Identification and measuring disaster risk.
• Education and knowledge development.
• Informing people about their risk (awareness raising)
• Incorporating DRM into national planning and investment.
• Strengthening institutional and legislative arrangements.
