Investing in disaster risk reduction: Implications for science and technology based on case studies from the local and national governments, the private sector and a university network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), adopted in March 2015 at the UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, prioritized four key areas, one of which was “Investing in DRR for resilience.” It requires stakeholders on all levels to invest in it. DRR investment should be based on natural and social-science research and focus on both structural and nonstructural measures. Each stakeholder-national and local governments, the private sector, and academia/universities-needs to develop DRR investment plans based on their specific situations. This chapter elaborates on the varying DRR investment needs of the different stakeholders.
