The 2014 World Disaster Report, developed by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and backed by the United Nations, explores how culture could become a central consideration in risk reduction efforts.
In particular, the seven-part report includes chapters focusing on:
- How religion and belief influence attitudes to risk
- Culture, risk and the built environment, and
- Putting culture at the center of risk reduction.
You can read the complete report here. There’s also an archive of previous years, which focus on topics like forced migration, hunger, and urban risk.
