Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction 2013. From Shared Risk to Shared Value: the Business Case for Disaster Risk Reduction

Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction 2013. From Shared Risk to Shared Value: the Business Case for Disaster Risk Reduction
  • United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR). May 2013
  • This 2013 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR13) is the third biennial report coordinated by UNISDR. The previous two editions of the Global Assessment Report were predominantly written for an audience of policy- and decision-makers in government departments. In expanding its analysis to include and focus on the role of private investment, GAR13 aims at business leaders and private investors, on the one hand, and at local and national regulators, on the other hand.GAR13 explores how businesses, by investing in disaster risk management, can reduce costs and interruptions represented by disaster losses and impacts; how performance and reputation can also be enhanced by minimising uncertainty and unpredictability; why effectively managing disaster risks should be the hallmark of a competitive, sustainable and resilient business; and why a broader approach to business value creation that also addresses underlying drivers of risk is required.
