From multi-risk assessment to multi-risk governance: Recommendations for future directions

This paper examines how to maximise the benefits arising from, and overcome the barriers to, the implementation of a multihazard and multi-risk assessment approach within current risk management regimes. Working at two test sites, one in Naples and one in Guadeloupe, the research team engaged in a continuous dialogue with local authorities and practitioners to better understand how to effectively implement the results of multi-risk assessment.

The paper offers the following recommendations for future directions (pp. 10-12):

  • creation of multi-risk platforms;
  • creation of local multi-risk commissions.

This document is an input paper of the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
