Sphere Thematic Sheets (TS) explain Sphere’s relevance for a specific theme. Here, we
encourage Sphere users to mainstream Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) into their work and
highlight to DRR specialists how Sphere supports their work.
The Sphere Handbook does not explicitly mention DRR in its principles and standards. However,
there is a direct and strong link between the two. This TS gives a brief overview of the concept of DRR
and explores the mutual relevance of Sphere and DRR activities, common principles and approaches anchored in
both, as well as a focus on Sphere’s technical chapters.
