Perspectives on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)


Ryan Vachon
Here at CCB we examine the various approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), with an emphasis on hydrologic hazards associated with El Niño, La Niña and the Neutral phase (all phases of the ENSO Cycle).  We look at the programs in place,  who are the players are, what are identifiable hurdles and what approaches are taken to mitigate and survive those disasters.  In order to gain perspective on the health and functionality of different programs or the needs of regions under threat of these foreseeable disasters, we talk to experts in not only related fields of study, but other various branches of disaster mitigation, survival, infrastructure, rebuilding and many others.  Each segment below addresses a unique and informed vantage point on DRR.

Big “DRR” vs. Little “drr”
In this video by Ryan Vachon, he explains in just over 2 minutes the differences between Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Disaster Response and Recovery (drr). While having only slight differences in the acronym, the definition and implementation of these approaches to disasters are extremely different. One should be implemented before the disaster strikes and the other begins at ground zero when the impacts are the worst.
