Disaster Management Planning
Environment for Sustainable Development
ThemesUNCRD targets its programmes towards sustainable economic, social, and environmental development. The Environment Programme gives special focus to environmentally sustainable transport (EST) and waste management. In recognition of the vital importance of human security, this concept is being integrated into activities carried by all UNCRD offices. The Disaster Management Planning primarily implements projects for sustainable development through disaster management. The Africa Office in Nairobi, Kenya and the Latin America and the Caribbean Office in Bogotá, Colombia both conduct wide-ranging research and training in local and regional development, in response to the needs of the respective regions.
