Date: 2019-10-09      View counts: 5701    



Disasters are increasing globally. The Asian region suffers the maximum impacts of the disasters in terms of the numbers of affected people as well as human and economic losses. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction to prevent new, and reduce existing risk and to strengthen resilience to natural and man-made hazards, in order to achieve substantial reductions in disaster losses. This international commitment is also marked in both the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change, thus disaster risk reduction has become an integral part of global effort to pursue sustainable development goals (SDGs). Disaster prevention and risk reduction should be recognized as critical issue of development safety, and be reflected in the overall national development policy.
