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 supported the drafting of the framework that shapes the SDC’s engagement in DRR.

​The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is recognized by the UN Assembly as the global multi-stakeholder forum to review progress on the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The seventh session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction 2022 (GP22) took place from May 23-28 in Bali, Indonesia.​
