October 13 – International Day for Disaster Reduction

In many parts of the world women are responsible for securing food and water.

With disasters on the rise, the UN Office for Disaster Reduction believes they can play a key role in another important area: helping communities plan for these events.

For this reason, women and girls are the focus this year on the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, observed on 13 October.
