Business and disaster risk reduction: good practices and case studies

This publication contains 14 good practices and case studies that have been compiled by the Private Sector Advisory Group of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). Each of the 14 examples applies one or more of the five essentials for business in their pursuit of disaster risk reduction. It presents the various types of collaboration and cooperation, core to the all five essentials, that are positioned as critical in minimizing or potentially eliminating disasters as well as disasters’ effects on people, property and ultimately, the health, economy and resilience of workers, communities, regions and nations.

This publication is an evolving document. The UNISDR-Private Sector Advisory Group will continue to expand the portfolio of good practices and case studies to give readers relevant concepts, practical guidance and inspiration to contribute to disaster risk reduction through core-business practice.
