International Disaster Risk Reduction Day

International DRR Day is held across the globe every year on the 13th October, to ensure we celebrate how people and communities are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of reducing in the risks that they face.

 As Vanuatu is ranked one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to natural hazards we have a responsibility to ensure that as a community and as a nation we understand our dangers and how best we can prepare for them to reduce the negative impacts caused by disasters.
