Background of the day

October 13 is a day to remind the world that disaster risk is man-made. The goal of the 2021 International day for disaster risk reduction, #OnlyTogether # DRR Days, is to provide an advocacy platform to highlight best practices and examples of international cooperation that have a positive impact on the lives of people who live in disaster-prone parts of the world i.e. reducing the numbers of people affected by man-made and natural hazards. International  cooperation to developing  countries need to be substantially  enhanced through  adequate  and  sustainable  support  to  complement  national  actions in order to achieve target (f) by 2030.
