Area wide scale participation of all private and public sectors in disaster risk management

This input paper discusses the participation of private and public sectors in disaster risk management and especially the private sector's contribution to the area-wide economic resilience. It attempts to cover an issue on which the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 (HFA) didn’t make intense discussion. The publication underlines that the Area Business Continuity Management (BCM) enables all the stakeholders of private and public sectors to create mutual links and connectivity to avoid unexpected risks of losing assets and benefits;

To encourage contributions by both private and public sectors, the paper proposes the following (pp. 30-31):

  • the preparation of area-wide coordinated systems of disaster risk reduction such as Area Business Continuity Plan/Business Continuity Management (BCP/BCM);
  • participation of all key stakeholders in the Area BCM System is essential to ensuring effective coordination;
  • after participating in an Area BCM process, private enterprises then have the responsibility of linking their own BCPs to the Area BCP.

This document is an input paper of the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
