United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction

UNDRR (formerly UNISDR) is the United Nations focal point for disaster risk reduction. UNDRR oversees the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, supporting countries in its implementation, monitoring and sharing what works in reducing existing risk and preventing the creation of new risk.

UNDRR works at the intersection between understanding risk and risk impact: reducing disaster lossĀ and preventing the emergence of new risk.
