Stakeholder Forum: Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies (ARISE) constituency session

Economic growth and community well-being are directly impacted by disasters. Impacts often include long-term socio-cultural and psychological challenges. Risk reduction and prevention is a clear strategy to reduce negative impacts and encourage a flourishing global society. As key members of communities and drivers of growth, private sector companies have an important role to play in reducing disaster risk.

Private sector companies, both large and small, recognize the growing importance of disaster risk reduction (on macroeconomic stability, value chains, etc.). Nevertheless, the private sector is not alone in this task. As the Sendai Framework established, the “commitment, goodwill, knowledge, experience and resources” from all stakeholders including academia, media, and other sectors in civil society at the local, national, regional and global levels are needed.

This session gathers ARISE members to exchange views, experiences and knowledge, and broaden their impact based on an all-of-society approach.

Session objectives

  1. To demonstrate how the private sector and ARISE contribute to DRR
  2. To discuss how to enhance collective engagement in DRR
  3. To approve a statement from ARISE for the GP2022 to be submitted in text
