Disaster Risk Reduction & Hydrohazards

Disaster Risk Reduction is not only a focus area of IHP, but also of other programmes within UNESCO, WMO and other UN organisations (e.g. UN-ISDR). To advise countries that face severe water threats, the Dutch government initiated the Disaster Risk Reduction Team. This team of experts advises governments regarding urgent water issues, such as floods,  droughts, and water pollution. Dutch knowledge can be used to develop measures that prevent water-related disasters in the future.
