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.
