World Disaster Report by IFRC

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies(IFRC) is the world’s largest volunteer-based humanitarian network. IFRC created the report, the World Disasters Report, which takes on a challenging theme that looks at different aspects of how culture affects disaster risk reduction (DRR) and how disasters and risk influence culture. Most people who live in places that are exposed to serious hazards are aware of the risks they face, including earthquakes, tropical cyclones, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, floods, landslides and droughts. One important goal of this edition of the World Disasters Report is to bring complex issues and clashes of cultures into the open for discussion, so that they can be much better incorporated into DRR work.
