IGNITE Stage: Building local capacity for risk governance and resilience
- Time and Date: Wednesday 11 May (12:15 - 12:30)
Vajira Hettige & Theo Schildermann,
Inclusion of disaster risks into development plans will make local development effective in the long run. This means disaster management structures not existing separately but being incorporated in plans and policies of key sectors. Such processes should bring communities into governance mechanisms where they become active players in vulnerability reduction.
