f) and g). At the summit, both national and
international actors committed to direct their
resources towards enhancing preparedness
- including early warning, risk analysis and
readiness to response - at the local level.
They also put the focus on reducing risk and vulnerability, rather than on costly response and
Panelists will present how they have integrated
a risk-informed approach across national
DRR strategies, and how this has reduced

impact. Forward-looking examples will highlight
shared risk analysis and collective outcomes.
