UNISDR’s 2012 Annual Report provides an update on progress midway through the 2012–2013 biennium.

In Section 2, 2012 Highlights, UNISDR has selected 7 areas of significant achievement to highlight how UNISDR has contributed to political change, working with new partners ensuring a broad spectrum of actors are committed to reducing disaster risk and shaping the policy dialogue and resulting action to build resilience.

Section 3, Who we are and what we do, explains UNISDR in organizational terms and how it works to convince and connect, generate knowledge, advocate and mobilize action.

Structured according to UNISDR’s Strategic Framework 2012–2015, Section 4 and Annex 1 report in more detail on UNISDR’s results and the impact of its activities in countries and communities around the world during 2012. The reporting follows the order of the four strategic objectives, the outcomes, outputs and indicators.

The progress made in 2012, along with UNISDR’s commitment to strengthened management, provide evidence that UNISDR’s vision of a world which acts decisively on the social, political and economic need to reduce disaster risk is within reach.
