Opening remarks: Business for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience

This dialogue will focus on the role of financial reform, regulation, building codes and incentives to allow business to make safer investments and avoid creating new risk in the process of driving economic growth and development.

 

Collaboration is essential. Neither the public, nor private sector can manage disaster risk on their own. This dialogue will focus on the exchange of risk information and business solutions between the public and the private sectors and how this process of exchange can reduce disaster risk for cities and urban areas, global value chains as well as micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME’s).

 

Every business activity involves a taking a certain amount of calculated risk. However, taking calculated risks and managing these is at the core of entrepreneurship and long-term business resilience and continuity. In addition, proposed next steps for the 5 Essentials for Business in DRR will be discussed. This will shape the commitment of business to the of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.
