GAR Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction
The Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) is a biennial global assessment of disaster risk reduction and comprehensive review and analysis of the natural hazards that are affecting humanity. The GAR contributed to achieving the aims of the Hyogo Framework for Action through monitoring risk patterns and trends and progress in disaster risk reduction while providing strategic policy guidance to countries and the international community. It will also be a powerful tool as the world works to implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction through to 2030.
The GAR aims to focus international attention on the issue of disaster risk and encourage political and economic support for disaster risk reduction. The GAR is produced in collaboration and consultation with a wide range of stakeholders, including various UN agencies, governments, academic and research institutions, donors and technical organizations and specialists.
The GAR includes country profiles as well as a risk data platform that may benefit policymakers in the Asia-Pacific region in gaining a better understanding of national and regional risks and ensure e-resilience of critical ICT infrastructure.
