EU welcomes progress shown on Disaster Risk Reduction by UN Report ahead of Sendai World Conference

Thursday, 5 March, 2015

The EU welcomes the publication by the UN Secretary-General of the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR 2015). Evidence from the GAR provides a compelling case for the need to improve disaster risk reduction in the coming years. This will be a crucial step in the implementation of the international frameworks on disaster risk reduction, climate change and sustainable development in 2015 and beyond, all of them due to be agreed this year.
