The Global Centre for Disaster Statistics (GCDS) was established in April 2015. The GCDS will create a unique collaboration among United Nations organizations and other disaster risk reduction (DRR) related institutions, centering on collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The purpose of the Centre is to support countries to manage disaster risks in their country and contribute to international process on DRR.
The GCDS has developed a database on statistical data concerning the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, hoping that the lessons from the catastrophic disaster will be spread across the world.
In partnership with the United Nations, the GCDS is particularly focusing on assisting developing countries.
We would highly appreciate your generous donations to our activities.
