International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction

Annually observed on October 13, the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction (IDDR) is devoted to heightening awareness about disasters, their effects on living beings, and preventive measures.

Designated by the United Nations General Assembly, October 13 serves as the IDDR to foster a global culture of disaster risk reduction. The 2023 theme for the IDDR was "Fighting inequality for a resilient future." This day celebrates global efforts by individuals and communities to minimize their vulnerability to natural hazards, while also amplifying awareness of the repercussions of disasters and crises on agriculture and food security.
