    Concept note

    When elements of the built environment are damaged or destroyed, the ability of society to function – economically and socially – is severely disrupted, reflecting the critical role of property and construction. The protective characteristics of the built environment offer an important means by which humanity can reduce the risk posed by hazards, thereby preventing a disaster.
