UNISDR & ARISE: Working Together To Cut The Cost Of Disasters

UNISDR & ARISE: Working Together To Cut The Cost Of Disasters

  • Overview

    Project objectives

    Every year, natural hazards cause more than US$300 billion in economic losses around the world. To help companies tackle these challenges, ARISE brings together 140 business and other organizations with the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) to factor disaster risk reduction into the planning for:
    1) CAPITAL INVESTMENTS
    2) SUPPLY CHAINS
    3) BUSINESS OPERATIONS

    The partnership is helping countries cut the costs of disaster response and recovery, freeing up often scarce resources for other development priorities.

    Companies and other participants can join activities related to:
    - Disaster Risk Management Strategies Investment Metrics
    - Benchmarking & Standards Education & Training
    - Legal & Regulatory
    - Urban Risk Reduction & Resilience Insurance

    Partnership Type: Local Implementation Partnership

    Business Driver: Addressing underlying risk factors through investment is more cost-effective than relying on post-disaster response and recovery – and it contributes to sustainable development.

    Learning: Develop a strong partnership brand and mission early. Foster a board made up of leaders willing to provide direction and support towards realizing shared goals.
