Call for Contributions: LIVE TO TELL CAMPAIGN: RAISING AWARENESSS, REDUCING MORTALITY

Dear Colleagues, 

 

I am pleased to share with you the concept note (attached below) of the International Disaster Risk Reduction Day 2016 to be held on 13 October under the theme 

LIVE TO TELL CAMPAIGN: RAISING AWARENESSS, REDUCING MORTALITY 

The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) wants you to use this opportunity to tell the world what you are doing to implement the Sendai Framework in order to reduce mortality and improve health outcomes from disasters.

Are you improving how people are becoming more risk informed? How are you doing it? Have you become more inclusive in your outreach with early warnings? 

We are seeking contributions from all partners of examples of action taken to reduce mortality. Ideal length should be 500 words with photographs. UNISDR can provide editorial support. 

 

I look forward to your inputs. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions 

 

Thanks and best wishes 

Chadia
