The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) is part of the UN Secretariat and its functions span the social, economic, environmental and humanitarian fields. Its headquarters is at Geneva, Switzerland. It is in news recently because on 2016 International Day for Disaster Reduction (IDDR), UNISDR has launched the new “Sendai Seven campaign- 7 Targets, 7 Years”, an advocacy initiative to encourage implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction with the goal of saving lives, reducing disaster losses and improving management of disaster risk.
