We are consuming our natural resources at an unprecedented rate, and the environment can’t keep up. Overconsumption is causing severe environmental degradation and weakening our natural defenses against disasters.

With a fifth of countries worldwide at risk of ecosystem collapse, it’s crucial to allocate funding to safeguard and replenish our natural systems and infrastructure. Protecting nature is essential to reducing disaster risk.

About UNDRR:
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) has a big ambition: to help decision-makers across the globe better understand and act on risk. At UNDRR, we believe there is no such thing as a natural disaster. A natural hazard, such as a hurricane, earthquake, tsunami, or flood, only becomes a disaster when it impacts a community that is not adequately protected and whose population is vulnerable as a result of poverty, exclusion, or social disadvantage. We envision a world where disasters no longer threaten the well-being of people and the future of the planet. Sustainable development and the 2030 Agenda cannot be achieved without working towards the goal of building resilience.
