The World Bank has been a prominent advocate and supporter of disaster risk management, assisting countries in evaluating their exposure to hazards and fostering hazard resilience Similarly, the European Commission operates the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre to enhance the knowledge base for effective disaster risk management. Health systems also play a vital role in managing and mitigating the impacts of emergencies and disasters, contributing to all-hazard disaster risk management

In summary, disaster risk management encompasses strategies to anticipate, prevent, and mitigate the impact of disasters. It involves the application of policies and initiatives to reduce risks, enhance resilience, and minimize losses.
