The risks posed by population development, environmental and climate change are increasing. Complex technical systems and infrastructure are additional risk factors. The risks posed by population development, environmental and climate change are increasing. Complex technical systems and infrastructure are additional risk factors. The RISK Award organizers, Munich Re Foundation and United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), recognise the need to address this development. The RISK Award has been set up to help improve risk reduction and disaster management by providing financial support to projects dedicated to this topic.
The Award aims to support innovative ideas, develop them further and help to scale them. Visibility, impact and enthusiasm should be embodied by the projects. Climate change, disaster risk reduction and sustainable development must go hand in hand to secure the future. For this reason, the Award's projects are in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Sendai Framework for Action.
The 2021 RISK Award is dedicated to the nature-based DRR solutions that also highlight the importance of social and economic stability. Nature- and ecosystem-based solutions can provide positive impetus for reducing disaster risk as well as for achieving sustainable development. These solutions can also make a significant contribution to addressing challenges related to the climate emergency.
