Up to 80% of all investment in any given country is coming from the private sector. It is therefore critical that the private sector engages to make this investment risk informed. The private sector is a critical participant in the creation of risk-resilient societies. By combining the intellectual (know-how) and capital assets of the private sector with the public sector and other stakeholders solutions will be developed and implemented to achieve the targets of the Sendai Framework by 2030.
