20 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living with Risk: A global review of disaster reduction initiatives brings to light the urgent need for action to be taken? and the people who are doing so? towards building sustainable societies in an increasingly disaster-prone world. Natural hazards can affect anyone, anywhere. People are threatened by hazards because of their social, economic and environmental vulnerability, which must be taken into account if sustainable development is to be achieved. Disaster risk reduction therefore concerns everyone, from villagers to heads of state, from bankers and lawyers to farmers and foresters, from meteorologists to media chiefs

GAR11 also outlines a range of emerging, very low-probability and hard-to-measure risks, which countries should begin to anticipate and prepare for
Integrating disaster risk reduction into the fight against poverty : Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery annual report 2008 by Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature and frequency of disasters are changing. Climate change, galloping urbanization, food insecurity, and conflicts are magnifying not only the impacts of natural hazards but also the risks that underlie them. The poor are hardest hit, especially in disaster-prone regions in Asia and Africa. Just in the past few months, the world has witnessed how easily disasters can wipe out decades of progress in poverty reduction and sustainable development. The powerful earthquake that rocked China's Sichuan province lasted only two minutes but killed 69,000 people and affected more than 45 million others. Economic losses and crumbling infrastructure are estimated to exceed $86 billion. In Myanmar, the deadly cyclone that struck in early May lasted less than two days, but, when it subsided, the official casualty count was more than 84,500 people. Reducing vulnerability in today's changing global landscape requires an unprecedented effort: the best knowledge and skills; greater innovation; strengthened human and institutional capacity; and much more efficient organization at the country, regional, and international levels. Since it was established in September 2006, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) has emerged as a unique, long-term global partnership for mainstreaming disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in development. Strategic GFDRR collaborations that thrive on diversity and synergies are the lifeblood of those efforts. Increasingly, strategic partnerships with organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America are expanding regional, national, and local capacities to respond to disaster risks and adapt to the impacts of climate change, both ex ante and ex post
