Geo-Hazards Risk Reduction
Section on Earth Sciences and Geo-Hazards Risk Reduction (EGR)

Responsible for providing the [[secretariat]]] service for the International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme (IGGP). The IGGP comprises the International Geoscience Programme (IGCP), which for over 45 years has brought geoscientists together from all regions of the world to study the Earth and geological processes under themes which have increasing societal relevance, and the UNESCO Global Geoparks, which promote sites of international geological value and are the basis of local sustainable development.

IGGP functions to serve as a knowledge hub of UNESCO to facilitate international scientific cooperation in the geosciences and sustainable use of natural resources, in particular mineral resources, and to advance new initiatives related to geo-diversity and geo-heritage.

The section has also the role to be an in-house interdisciplinary task force for a coherent UNESCO response based on sound science to natural hazards and disaster risk reduction, including capacity for early warning and early recovery response in UN Member States.

The increasing losses from disasters caused by natural hazards, including earthquakes, floods, landslides, volcanoes, windstorms, drought and desertification, represent a major challenge to UNESCO’s Member States, in particular developing ones.

Building a culture of resilient communities requires active and knowledgeable citizens and informed decision-makers.

Through a multidisciplinary and intersectoral approach, the Earth Sciences and Geo-Hazards Risk Reduction Section builds capacities and fosters partnerships so that Earth sciences and technology can serve to mitigate the effects of the threats and reduce vulnerability increase scientific knowledge and improve living conditions and well-being of communities in general.

International Geoscience Programme

Better understanding the Earth is essential for the diversity of life and future of human society.

The Earth sciences hold key answers to the challenges we must overcome to preserve our environment and develop sustainably.

For over forty years, UNESCO has worked with the International Union for Geological Sciences (IUGS) to mobilize global cooperation in the Earth sciences through the International Geoscience Programme (IGCP). This Programme has provided a platform for scientists from across the world to push the frontiers of knowledge forward through concrete projects.

In the early years, the Programme enhanced scientific exchange through the correlation of geological strata and research data, focusing on basic geoscientific research and on making connections between events throughout the Earth's history.

The Programme supports work on five themes:

Earth Resources: Sustaining our Society
Global Change: Evidence from the geological record
Geohazards: Mitigating the risks
Hydrogeology: Geoscience of the water cycle
Geodynamic: Control our environment

The Programme has always built bridges between disciplines and between scientists, including young ones, with aims of stimulating cutting-edge research and sharing scientific knowledge for the benefit of all.

UNESCO is the only United Nations organization with a mandate to support research and capacity in geology and geophysics, and the International Geoscience Programme is our flagship.
