This two-hour webinar presents a new business case for Disaster Risk Management based on the multiple dividends of resilience. This looks beyond only avoided losses (the first dividend) to the wider benefits gained independently of whether or not the disaster event occurs.
These wider benefits include unleashing entrepreneurial activities and productive investments by lowering the looming threat of losses from disasters and enabling businesses, farmers and homeowners to take positive risks (the second dividend); and co-benefits of resilience measures beyond just disaster risk (the third dividend). The discussion will also reflect on recent efforts to build a stronger business case for resilience in the private sector including the insurance sector.
The webinar will take place Wed, Feb 8, 2017 from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM CET. It will outline the concept and illustrate the different dividends, based on a new book ‘Realising the Triple Dividend of Resilience’.
Registration is required.
