Side Event | 9.45-12.00 | Tohoku University B201
Tuesday 17th March
Side Event - Understanding Disaster Resilience
The overarching goal of the post-2015 framework is to strengthen the resilience of people, communities and countries to disasters. This side event will discuss what is meant by resilience - the key attributes, underpinning principles and values. We will explore different perspectives including disaster, climate and conflict resilience to identify commonalities and differences.
These perspectives will then be considered during an open discussion involving expert panelists and questions and challenges from the audience as to how resilience is understood and applied within the post-2015 DRR framework and also the SDG and climate change frameworks.
How can you engage?
