Human Security & DRR

“Natural disasters are not simple natural phenomena; they are human phenomena. When seriously thinking about all of the dimensions of DRR, measures similar to the human security approach naturally come to the forefront…By making the human security approach more explicit in our disaster risk reduction efforts, we will be able to better plan and prepare for disaster prevention without leaving the most vulnerable people behind.”
