UN Official: Most Disasters Climate Related


 


 


 The head of United Nations office dedicated the risk of reduction is urging world leaders ahead of a major meeting in Japan to provide action oriented guidance. This is to tackle the underlying drivers of risk such as climate change. There are accounts of 87% of disasters have killed some 700,000 people over years. The improved performance of disaster management is talking about the 700,000 people who died from disaster events over the last ten years. A total of 1.7 billion people have had their lives messed with due to disaster said Margareta Wahlstrom, head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction. She says that 70% of deaths are caused by earthquakes, climate-related disasters. It is every important that the Disaster Risk Reduction which is going to be opening up on March 14, 2015 should be a clear action oriented guidance to the government to show them how the best way to tackle the underlying drivers of risk. Some of the risk are things like poverty, climate change, poorly planned urban growth, land use, and the decline of protective ecosystems. The third world disaster risk reduction is going to be going into place between March14, 2015 and March 18, 2015. They will be participants working to chart global courses on disaster risk reduction for the coming years. This is a big part of our world because many people deal with disasters every day all over the world and many people die from all of the disasters that happen. If people could help make the environment a better place and if the climate change was not so bad people would not have to worry as much about all of the disasters that we have. Most of the disasters that happen around the world are because of the climate change.
