The humanitarian sector will start 2015 marking two significant but sobering moments in its recent history: the 10th anniversary of the Indian Ocean Tsunami and the 5th anniversary of the Haiti Earthquake. Together, the disasters caused the deaths of over 300,000 people and affected millions more.
This will be the third WCDRR (UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction). A draft programme has now been released, which gives a first glance at what will occur during the conference. The programme will continue to be updated.
