Information relating to national disaster risk reduction policies needs to be better communicated to "regular people" according to a senior United Nations official in Paraguay.

The South American country recently hosted a meeting focusing on what's known as DRR, a key element of the Sendai Framework, an internationally agreed programme to mitigate the repercussions of natural and man-made disasters.

Cecilia Ugas is the Resident Coordinator of the UN in Paraguay.

Daniel Dickinson asked her to what extent disaster risk management should be seen through the lens of development.
