Disaster Risk Reduction
Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) means reducing the impact of natural disasters. This is especially relevant in the case of persons with disabilities, as they are among the most vulnerable people in society and are often forgotten during emergency situations. CBM and partner CDD in Bangladesh have implemented a pilot Disability inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DiDRR) project as an extension of the CBM commitment to Inclusive Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response.
Effects of natural disasters
Natural disasters cannot be prevented, but the effects of a disaster can be alleviated by enhancing capacities and reducing vulnerabilities beforehand. This is called Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
