Cross-border risk assessment
This document is the twelfth in a series of special topics for consideration, as part of the Words into Action Guidelines on National Disaster Risk Assessment published by UNISDR. This section provides a general introduction to risk assessment across international borders, including cross-boundary disaster risk reduction considerations (bilateral and multilateral) regarding governance and non-legally binding agreements, public- and private-sector collaboration, the establishment of common guidelines, harmonization of terminologies, and sharing of information, and the establishment of regional catastrophe risk pools.
With increased movements of capital, goods and populations, along with systematic drivers such as climate change, greater awareness of transboundary risk and bilateral and multilateral DRR cooperation will likely be needed.
