Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction, 2023


This GAR report on Mapping Resilience for the Sustainable Development Goals report highlights how factors such as the rapid deterioration of biodiversity, the degradation of land, and stress on water resources, lower the capacity of human systems to withstand hazards that are occurring more frequently and with greater intensity. Currently, only 50 percent of countries have operational early-warning systems and even fewer have legislation in place to connect these systems to preparedness and response plans that can ensure prevention and anticipatory action, as well as response. Humanitarian needs are also rising, as disasters and conflict continue to create enormous human suffering.

 the report’s action case examples show that this is not inevitable, and how action is possible on every continent to stop the worsening spiral of risk and disasters and to accelerate SDG target achievement.
