Disaster Reduction Goal
Goal: Contribute to strategic involvement of business in DRR and enhance public-private engagement
We help define the role of business in tackling global challenges such as poverty,vulnerability to climate change and natural hazards, food insecurity, or the destructions of ecosystems and biodiversity.
We contribute to engaging business in development agendas and help building partnerships between the business sector and organisations working on community development, environmental conservation or disaster risk reduction.
Policies and Programmes in DRR
In 2014, CSR Asia will undertake several activities to build understanding on disaster risk reduction in the private sector and foster private sector engagement in various Disaster Risk Management areas. Specifically, CSR Asia will publish a number of reports and host a business roundtable as well as a Disaster Preparedness Forum.
