International Day of Disaster Reduction

October 13

“We can replace material possessions, but we cannot replace people. I am repeatedly appalled at how many people die in disasters. The majority of victims are invariably the poor and vulnerable. […] Let us move from a culture of reaction to one of prevention and build resilience by reducing loss of life.” — UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
