This year the focus of the International Day for Disaster Reduction 2014 (13 October) is on including people of all ages including older people and how they contribute to better understanding and planning of disaster risk in their communities. We want the IDDR 2014 Thunderclap to amplify inclusivity now and for the post-2015 framework on disaster risk reduction.
International Day for Disaster Reduction is an annual international campaign to raise awareness of disaster risk reduction. This year's theme is older people including their needs and how they contribute to better understanding and planning of disaster risk in their communities.
