R!SE Japan Symposium - 12 March 2015 - Tokyo
The objective of the R!SE Japan Symposium is to convene Disaster Risk Management (DRM) thought leaders and subject matter experts, and to discuss and explore concrete examples of risk-sensitive investments to create risk-resilient societies. During the event, we will discuss how to create new opportunities through R!SE to promote risk-sensitive investments in Japan and internationally leveraging also Japanese expertise on urban resilience.
R!SE will be officially launch in the United States and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), the R!SE Alliance Partners and other R!SE stakeholders will discuss implementation of the R!SE Initiative locally, across the US, and globally.

Reducing disaster risk might not be every treasurer’s top priority. But given the importance of managing all risks to the business in the treasury department, the R!SE initiative – intended to encourage risk-sensitive investments – deserves the treasury community’s attention.
