Learn Stakeholder Engagement For Disaster Risk Reduction & Resilience


Join us for this Sustainability in Action event to hear about the research and global policy frameworks supporting this work, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals. Emily Gvino, of the Re-Energize Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience Project, will explain the current multi-level governance approach with respect to addressing vulnerability and how to improve upon the stakeholder identification and engagement process. She will compare current governance approaches and vulnerability indicators within the United States, as they relate to those left out of the process by discrimination, geography, governance, socioeconomic status, shocks, and fragility, or similar issues.

The frequency and severity of weather-related hazards are expected to worsen with the impacts of climate change. By 2030, there could be 325 million people globally bearing the burden of these events. The Re-Energize Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience (DR3) Project is an international collaboration, supporting the review of disaster-related targets, goals, and indicators set forth by the United Nations (UN). They work to strengthen disaster resources and collect data around vulnerability and disaster risk and resilience (DRR) indicators to help increase the capacity for local governments to effectively deal with these disasters events.
