Celebrating Disaster Risk Reduction

2014 global slogan for Disaster Risk Reduction

The Step Up initiative started in 2011 and will be focusing on a different group of partners every year leading up to the World Conference for Disaster Reduction in 2015 - Children and Young People (2011), Women and Girls (2012), people living with disabilities (2013), and the ageing population (2014).

This year the focus of the International Day for Disaster Reduction (13 October) is on older people, including their needs and what they contribute to better planning and understanding of disaster risk in their communities.
