International Day for Disaster Reduction on 13 October: Reducing the number of affected people by disasters by 2030.

13 October is the International Day for Disaster Reduction. Every year, all individuals, communities and governments are encouraged to take part in building more disaster resilient communities and nations. The UN General Assembly called for the International Day for Disaster Reduction in 1989 as a way to promote a global culture of risk-awareness and disaster reduction.
The 2017 edition continues under the "Sendai Seven" campaign, centred on the seven targets of the Sendai Framework. This year's focus is Target B: Reducing the number of affected people by disasters by 2030.
