Working together – Partnership for DRR
For every dollar invested in actions to reduce disaster losses, a nation saves up to $8 in future costs.
Building resilience and promoting disaster risk reduction is a collective responsibility and challenge which calls for coordinated actions. NDRMF works closely at all levels with a wide variety of partners towards a national and comprehensive effort to reduce disaster risks in Pakistan and contribute to international development targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN Sendai Framework 2030 and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
