  • Efforts are underway by the UN to drastically reduce the number of people who are affected by natural and man-made disasters from the 100 million who suffered last year.

    Those people include more than 50 million who faced drought.

    Flooding, earthquakes and hurricanes brought devastating consequences to millions of others.
