Global Assessment Report

'From Shared Risk to Shared Value: the Business Case for Disaster Risk Reduction' explores the interactions between business investments and disaster risk. It highlights how disasters are becoming a growing global challenge to business and country competitiveness, sustainability and resilience - and why business will have to play a central role in efforts to reduce disaster risk. The GAR 13 launches in May at the Global Platform.

The 2011 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction - revealing risk, redefining development - contributes to achieving the Hyogo Framework of Action by monitoring risk patterns and progress in disaster risk reduction. Importantly, it also provides guidance and suggestions to governments and non-governmental actors alike, on how they can, together, reduce disaster risks. This landmark publication builds on and moves beyond the analysis provided by the inaugural Report in 2009.

The 2009 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction - risk and poverty in a changing climate - provides hard-hitting evidence to demonstrate how, where and why disaster risk is increasing globally and presents key findings from a global analysis of disaster risk patterns and trends, including where high mortality and economic loss is concentrated.
