UNISDR scientific and technical advisory group (STAG) platform and network survey
This document reports on the outcomes from a survey initiated by GRF Davos on behalf of the UNISDR Scientific and Technical Advisory Group (STAG) amongst Disaster Risk Reduction platforms and networks. The STAG’s current understanding is that the “platforms” have a scientific and technological basis revolving around risks and disasters, whereas the “networks” have more of a coordination function at their core with respect to key areas of disaster risk reduction (DRR).
The survey served the STAG to get a closer insight into the structure and the working mechanisms of the platforms and networks and to get an overview on how to make better use of the platforms and networks in supporting the UNISDR systems work, as well as the see if a network of networks shall be put in place to strengthen DRR activities.
