UNDP Lebanon has launched the new animation video “Act Now, Save Later
” highlighting the urgent need to invest more in preparing for and preventing natural disasters, which have claimed more than 1 million lives since 2000. The video, funded by OCHA and UNDP, highlights that every dollar of foreign aid spent on averting and mitigating disasters saves an average of US$7 in humanitarian disaster response. The video also shows how practical solutions, such as building retaining walls and earthquake-resistant structures, and distributing drought-resistant seeds, can help avert the devastating effects of disasters. On the occasion of the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, which falls on the 13th of October every year, UNDP Lebanon, "Strengthening Disaster Risk Management Capacities in Lebanon" project, is broadcasting this short movie at the cinemas across Lebanon during the month of October.
