The theme of the 2013 International Day for Disaster Reduction (IDDR) is "Living with Disability and Disasters".

"Inclusion saves lives. And it empowers persons with disabilities to take ownership of their own safety – and that of their community."


By resolution 64/200 of 21 December 2009 the General Assembly decided to designate 13 October as the date to commemorate the Day and to change the Day's name to International Day for Disaster Reduction. The objective of the observance is to raise awareness of how people are taking action to reduce their risk to disasters.
