Session Abstract

Large scale natural and human-induced disasters generate considerable human and economic losses. The total damages in OECD and BRIC countries have been estimated at nearly USD 1.5 trillion over the last decade. The Great East Japan Earthquake exemplifies both the unpredictability and the long range impacts that such events can have. How can countries increase economic and social resilience and how can governments learn from shared experiences? Risk Reviews can help to provide a sound base to achieve a fundamental shift in risk governance through peer learning. They can help to highlight the main governance obstacles hampering the effectiveness of risk reduction investments as well as to underline the value of alternative policy options. The OECD, the European Commission and the UNISDR have been actively engaged in supporting a number of countries in risk peer review processes. This Plenary Session will provide insight into the policy dynamics of peer learning, and will help share the different review approaches. Country representatives involved will be invited to share the challenges and opportunities at country level that are offered by peer review to improve risk management policies. This entails raising awareness of risks to increase stakeholder engagement in policy processes, providing incentives to individuals and companies, and stimulating collective actions among local and neighbouring communities.
