Disaster risk reduction

Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) plays a critical role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) has a specific target (11.5) to significantly reduce the number of deaths and the number of people affected by disasters, including water-related disasters, with a focus on protecting the poor and people in vulnerable situations. DRR also intersects with other SDGs. For instance, by reducing vulnerability to natural disasters, DRR contributes to SDG 1 (No Poverty), SDG 2 (Zero Hunger), and SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being). Moreover, DRR measures can help preserve terrestrial and marine ecosystems (SDGs 14 and 15) by mitigating the environmental impacts of disasters. Therefore, DRR strategies are vital for achieving resilience and sustainability as outlined by the SDGs.

This paper provides 57 site velocity measurements, with interpretation, for the Hatay Triple Junction in the region of the 6 February 2023 M 7.8 Pazarcik earthquake sequence in Southeastern Turkey. Given the significance of this earthquake sequence, and the potential uses for future earthquake predictions, this paper would apply to SDG 15 -Life on land.

This chapter advances the UN SDG goals 11 and 10 by contextualizing how the integration of indigenous practice and scientific knowledge of DRR can support development organizations and policymakers in planning effective and practical activities to mitigate and manage disaster risk in indigenous communities. This conceptual article argues that indigenous knowledge can assist in becoming more aware of disaster risks, implementing a successful local disaster management plan, and conducting scientific research and training.
This chapter advances the UN SDG goals 11 and 10 by developing a practical philosophy that elaborates elements from the Indigenous knowledge system for hybrid epistemologies from which actions can be developed for disaster risk reduction.
This article supports SDGs 9, 11, and 17 by illustrating the opportunity for the use of electric powered vehicles as an energy source during natural disaster events.
