Description

This event aims to change the debate on how to incentivize greater  investment in DRR by devoting more attention to the wider benefits of DRR investments that occur independently of whether or not the disaster event occurs.

A lively panel session draws on preliminary study findings of a report entitled, Unlocking the triple dividend of resilience: why investing in disaster risk management pays off, by ODI, World Bank, GFDRR and partners.
