Protecting private sector investments against the impacts of natural hazards and climate change is a key challenge in supporting sustainable development. In order to increase the understanding of ‘how to’ strengthen the resilience of private sector operations, this session will showcase efforts of private companies and business networks in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. It will present risk assessment tools, training modules, and risk reduction approaches for SMEs operating in particularly affected sectors like tourism and fisheries. The event will facilitate the exchange on successful approaches for embedding disaster and climate risk management elements in business models and operations.
