The 13th of October is a day set aside to remind the world that disaster risk is entirely man-made. The goal of the 2021 International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction is to provide a platform for advocacy to highlight best practices and examples of international cooperation that have a positive impact on the lives of people who live in disaster-prone areas of the world, i.e. reducing the number of people affected by man-made and natural hazards.
KBC radio journalist and DIRAJ member Carole Gachacha had a chat with Julius Kabubi, the associate programme management officer for The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction – UNDRR on the importance of this day and why international collaboration with developing countries must be significantly increased through suitable and sustainable support to complement national activities.
