Session Abstract

Risks and disasters are having an increasingly profound effect on global society. In a world of global markets and inter-regional supply chains, of financial destabilization, resource depletion, water scarcity, environmental degradation, and social inequity, the impact of disasters is likely to worsen in the future. Are we prepared for the global impacts caused by disasters? In order to meet the challenges, tools and mechanism need to be in place to allow effective risk reduction and disaster management. The panellists will discuss, among other things, the following questions: How can one make prevention more attractive? Is a “new humanitarianism” needed, in which the agenda is being expanded to include governance, the promotion of livelihoods, the provision of security, social protection, and other activities related to development? How does Rio+20 affect DRR? How can risk management be moved forward after 2015 and the end of the first application period for the Hyogo Framework for Action, 2005-2015?
