China is one of the countries in the world with
the most severe natural disasters. The disasters
are various in types, cover large geographic areas,
have high frequencies and result in huge losses. An
earthquake with huge destructive power took place in
Wenchuan, Sichuan province, resulting in high
casualties and big financial losses on May 12, 2008.
To continue increasing the awareness of disaster
prevention and reduction by the general public and to
improve the work capabilities for disaster prevention,
reduction and relief, starting from 2009, approved by
the State Council, May 12 every year is named the National
Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Day. May 12, 2022 is
the 14th National Day of Disaster Prevention and
Mitigation in China. This year's theme is "Reduce
disaster risk and protect our homeland".
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) has long attached importance to
global cooperation in the field of disaster prevention
and mitigation, and is committed to promoting knowledge
sharing and services for disaster prevention and mitigation.
As a category II center of UNESCO, the International
Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology
under the Auspices of UNESCO (IKCEST) established Disaster
Risk Reduction Knowledge Service sub-platform (DRR).
Impelled by UNESCO’s mission of disaster prevention and
mitigation, IKCEST-DRR is committed to formulating global
metadata standards and establishing a global meta-database
for disasters by consolidating the data from different
kinds of disasters; integrating cross-disciplinary,
cross-field, and cross-region disaster data resources and
providing knowledge service applications on line; and
carrying out education, training, and technology exchange
on disaster risk reduction. IKCEST-DRR was launched in
May 2017 (http://drr.ikcest.org), providing free knowledge
sharing services for domestic and foreign users.
IKCEST-DRR is going to organize the collection of related
works in order to comply with the appeal of people from
all walks of life to China's disaster prevention and mitigation,
on the other hand, to remind people to pay more attention
to disaster prevention, and strive to reduce disaster losses.
