International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction 2021

Only together can we make true progress towards a safer and more resilient planet.

- Mami Mizutori, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction and Head of UNDRR

October 13 marks the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) will highlight this year the importance of partnerships and international cooperation.

At the Connecting Business initiative (CBi), we work with local private sector networks to foster multi-stakeholder collaboration – with business a value-adding partner alongside governments, the United Nations, and civil society organisations – with a focus on disaster risk reduction (DRR).
