In order to inform holistic understanding
of disasters' many impacts and motivate
increased investment in resilience at various
scales, the session will present state-of the art
in research, policy and practice. The session
will review innovative methods and tools for (i)
assessing the broader socioeconomic impacts
of disasters (on life&assets; migration); (ii)
understanding the drivers of specific events; (iii)
broadly measuring and monitoring resilience;
(iv) aligning methods and tools along a systems
perspective in order to inform implementation
across the science-practice interface.
