  Disasters occur when natural extremes encounter communities who are ill-prepared to cope with these forces. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategies outline preventative measures to reduce the impacts of foreseeable hazardous events. Time and time again, such actions have been proven to save time, money, resources, lives and livelihoods of at risk communities.

  In February 2015 a USAID-funded Expert Forum was assembled in Antalya, Turkey to address why societies are not learning from the lessons that emerged from coping with and responding to previous disasters. This film outlines some of the recurring issues at the foundation of this pressing conundrum and the need for effective next steps in future hazard response.
