Harnessing innovation to reduce disaster risks in Austria, France and Switzerland

Source(s):  Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

This report presents the synthesis analysis of the results of the cross-country comparative study of disaster risk prevention and mitigation policies in Austria, France and Switzerland. It builds on and integrates material from the country case studies on the Rhone River basin in France, on the Alpine Regions in Austria and on Switzerland, which have been previously distributed to the High Level Risk Forum.

The synthesis analysis summarises countries’ approaches to strengthening their risk prevention measures, which include initiatives that aim at increasing risk awareness levels and creating a whole of society approach to disaster risk prevention, improving the understanding of hazards and risks, as well as those initiatives that evaluate the relative costs and benefits of structural investments.
