Disaster-Risk Reduction ‘Lies At The Nexus Of’ Development Assistance, Humanitarian Aid

Project Syndicate: A Global Strategy for Disaster Risk
Ban Ki-moon, U.N. secretary-general

“…It is time to stop addressing development and humanitarian emergencies separately. Disaster-risk reduction lies at the nexus of development assistance, which seeks to advance better living conditions, and humanitarian aid, which begins after a disaster hits. Starting our international calendar with the Sendai meeting on disaster-risk reduction sends a clear signal that the world is ready to integrate its strategies…” (3/11).
