ARISE Network Japan (ARISE-NJ)
ARISE is an initiative of UNISDR and is a recognized private sector stakeholder group. Over 140 companies and organizations, headquartered in 38 countries and active in 150 countries around the world, work with UNISDR to realize disaster resilient societies. One of its local networks, ARISE Network Japan has led the way towards establishing a local presence of private sector DRR champions.
This publication is released on the occasion of the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in Mexico, where curbing the rise of economic losses, and engagement of the private sector, will be in focus as key issues that must be discussed in this first Global Platform after the adoption of the Sendai Framework to successfully reach the goals of the Sendai Framework by 2030.
This volume contributes to give a clearer picture of private sector partners, in the form of self-introduction by ARISE-Network Japan member companies that their recent best practices and how working with UNISDR through ARISE has changed them for the better.
