Egypt: National strategy for disaster risk reduction 2030

April 2017

Egypt witnessed great historic events when the Egyptian people staged the 25th January Revolution which enjoys a unique status among major revolutions that have taken place throughout human history. On June 30, 2013 tens of millions of Egyptians flooded to the country's squares to rectify the path of the 25th January Revolution. In the wake of the 25th January Revolution, Egypt faced a great deal of challenges as a result of the atrocious and lawless events which caused material and economic losses at both national and regional levels. Consequently, there arose a need for adopting a risk reduction approach as part of the emergency preparedness, response and recovery programs, particularly in view of the proliferation of risks and threats which Egypt is experiencing. These risks have increased to such a point as would pose a threat to human existence and to life on earth.
