Kasumigaseki Building 8F, 3-2-5, Kasumigaseki, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 100-6008, Japan
Under the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, national governments are primarily responsible for disaster risk reduction and are advised to work closely with local governments and the private sector on mitigation efforts. Priority focuses stipulated in the framework include understanding disaster risk through data collection and analysis, strengthening disaster risk governance, investing in disaster risk reduction, and enhancing disaster preparedness and recovery.
UNESCO’s International Centre for Water Hazard and Risk Management (ICHARM) has been conducting innovative research on water-related disaster data collection, storage, and statistical analysis, as well as risk assessment, risk monitoring, and risk change prediction. ICHARM has also promoted policy ideas for enhancing water-related disaster risk reduction, disaster management, and capacity building programs.
Co-organized by ADBI and ICHARM, this policy dialogue will examine ways to promote water-related disaster resilience in developing Asia through the adoption of scientific evidence and tools in policymaking. The discussions will draw upon Japan’s disaster risk management program and lessons learned. The emphasis will further be on facilitating the adoption of comprehensive governance, financing, and management frameworks that advance disaster risk reduction.
By invitation or prior arrangement with ADBI.
