Disaster risk management

Increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events calls for strengthened disaster risk management, improved local practices for risk reduction and enhanced emergency response and rehabilitation interventions. Building on its long-standing experience in sustainable development and disaster risk management, FAO prioritizes actions for disaster risk reduction as an entry point to climate change adaptation in areas under frequent threat of climate-related emergencies.
