About the Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies (ARISE)

ARISE, the Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies is a network of private sector entities committed to helping to implement the Sendai Framework, and led by UNDRR. ARISE mobilizes and facilitates the private sector to carry out risk-informed investments and to apply business practices that reduce and prevent the creation of risk, build resilience and enhance recovery from disasters, in line with the Sendai Framework. Organized into national networks, of which there are currently 29 worldwide, ARISE focuses on four priorities: SMEs; integrating DRR into investment decisions; incentivizing DRR within the insurance industry, and resilient infrastructure.
