Understanding hazards: a scientific report on hazards definition for the Sendai Framework
The broad range and complex nature of hazards calls for a standardised fully-fledged characterization of hazards that serves as a basis for countries to assess and accordingly enhance their risk reduction policies and operational risk management practices.
Recognizing this challenge, in 2019, the International Science Council and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) partnered up to launch an ambitious science project to identify the full scope of all hazards relevant to the Sendai Framework and the scientific definitions of these hazards.
The webinar will launch and present a detailed report including 6 targeted recommendations.
