30 Innovations for Disaster Risk Reduction


The need for increased application of innovation and technology for disaster risk reduction (DRR) has never been greater in order to foster new development and implementation of more effective evidence-based approaches. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction encourages better access and support for innovation and technology as well as increased investment in DRR to develop new innovations that are both cost-effective and beneficial when applied in all disaster management phases.
30 Innovations for DRR includes the innovative products and approaches considered to be extremely effective and those that have already contributed to reducing disaster risks. This publication is collaborative venture by Tohoku University, Keio University, University of Tokyo, UN University, and CWS Japan.  It will also be publicized at the Global Platform for DRR in May 2019, in Geneva.
