International Strategy for Disaster Reduction

Welcome to HFA-Pedia, the ISDR system-wide interactive tool for facilitating information exchange and improved reporting. We hope you find this tool useful and welcome your comments and inputs.

This online interactive encyclopedia surrounding disaster risk reduction is open to any DRR-related topic of interest and currently includes national pages with useful information for all countries and overseas territories belonging to the Americas region, as well as a large and ever-increasing number of pages and articles surrounding transversal themes and topics of interest to the DRR community. Although new pages can be created or existing ones edited in a user-friendly way, the ISDR secretariat, as host of the HFA-Pedia, reserves the right to approve all changes.
