Know Risk
UNISDR, 2005
by: United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

Know Risk is a fully illustrated, 376-page hardback book in which over 160 authors describe their work in disaster reduction at international, regional, national, municipal and local levels. Their commentaries draw upon experiences around the world to reflect how people are living with natural and related environmental and technological risks, and how they are making their own efforts to reduce their exposure to disasters. Know Risk reflects the progress in this field over the past ten years, highlighting good practices and drawing on the UN/ISDR coordinated review of the Yokohama Strategy and Plan of Action for a Safer World (1994). By focusing on the experiences and livelihoods of people in vulnerable human habitats, Know Risk emphasises the benefits of experience leading into future actions and institutional commitments to disaster reduction.
