A risk-proofed welcome to the SDC DRR Network!


​​​Welcome to the SDC Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Network. The Network brings together a community of practitioners and experts from the SDC and partner organisations ​working in the field of DRR. Our vision is a world where risks from natural and environmental hazards, and risks related to climate change, are anticipated and effectively managed and reduced - in order to protect and improve lives, ecosystems and economic assets in view of more resilient societies.

​​​This Shareweb is the common space of the DRR Network to share knowledg​​​​e and information, foster exchange of experiences, best practices, and tools.


The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 is the first major agreement of the post-2015 development agenda and aims at reducing and preventing disaster risks worldwide. It sets the priorities of the international commu​nity for DRR under the responsibility of Member States and society as a whole. Switzerland actively sup​ported the drafting of the framework that shapes the SDC’s engagement in DRR.
