ENHANCE - Partnership for Risk Reduction
This book is the final result of the ENHANCE project.This project aimed at developing and analysing novel ways to enhance society's resilience to catastrophic natural hazard impacts. It analysed and developed new multi-sector partnerships (MSPs) between public and private sectors, with emphasis on the financial sector. MSPs are voluntary but enforceable commitments between partners from different sectors (public authorities, private services/enterprise and civil society), which can be temporary or long-lasting. They are founded on sharing the same goal: reduce risk and increase resilience. The project was carried out by 25 partners from academic institutes, governmental sector, private companies, and international organisations, with emphasis on the financial sector such as insurance.
