The 2011 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR11) – Revealing Risk, Redefining Development – launched in Geneva, Switzerland on the opening day of the Third Session of the Global Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction (10 May, 2011). This landmark publication is a major initiative of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) that contributes to the achievement of the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA) through monitoring risk patterns, trends and progress in disaster risk reduction, while offering guidance and suggestions to governments and non-governmental actors alike, on how they can, together, reduce disaster risk.

The DRR Program at FIU will host a regional launch following the Global Platform reaching out to, inter alia national/local governments, UN/non-governmental organizations and academic institutions.
