Working Session | 10.00-11.30 | Hagi Hall
Underlying Risk Factors
Monday 16th March
Organisers: GNDR, International Consortium on Landslides (ICL), Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT, Government of Japan), PSAG representative, UNESCO, UNDP, UNU, WMO, UNISDR
Over the 10 years of HFA implementation countries report most challenges in addressing the underlying drivers of risk. These were subsumed under the Priority Area 4 of the HFA and in fact encompass a range of development issues, many of which lie outside of the traditional responsibility of disaster managers and risk specialists. The addressing of underlying risk factors is fundamental to reducing disaster risk.
The Working Session will provide an opportunity present and discuss concrete country and locality examples that clearly unpack different underlying drivers of risk and also show ways that these have been or will be addressed.
