UN Assistant Secretary General for disaster risk reduction, Margareta Wahlstrom hailed the support of UAE to the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR).

She expressed UN's appreciation for the efforts made by UAE for building disaster resilient communities as well as the continued support given to the UN agency in this regard.

Wahlstrom made these comments while visiting the headquarters of the UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) in Abu Dhabi, where she was received by Sana' Darwesh Al Ketbi, Humanitarian Affairs Adviser to Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of RCA HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and Acting Chairperson of RCA's Board of Directors.

During a meeting, the two sides discussed cooperation in the field of promoting increased awareness of the importance of disaster reduction as an integral component of sustainable development, with the goal of reducing human, social, economic and environmental losses due to natural hazards and related technological and environmental disasters.

They also stressed the continuation of the support to the UN International Strategy for Disaster risk reduction which was adopted by member states in 2000.

Al Ketbi said that RCA is working in coordination with other agencies in the country for building disaster resilient communities, and will enormously benefit from the UN programme in this regard. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
