The 1988 Spitak Earthquake claimed 25,000 lives and left 500,000 homeless in Armenia – in the three decades since, however, the country has taken some important steps toward disaster resilience.

This commemorative publication briefly explores the evolution of disaster risk management 30 years on from the 1988 Spitak Earthquake, featuring winning images from a recent regional photo contest.
