Private Sector Activities in Disaster Risk Reduction: Good Practices and Lessons Learned

Authors: International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) (for UN)
Publication date: 2008

This publication highlights seventeen examples of how the private sector engages in partnerships to reduce the risk of disaster. An attempt has been made to divide the examples into the three partnership types. Many examples have been submitted from the Asia Region, especially from Japan where a strong commitment exists on the engagement of the private sector in disaster risk reduction. A fundamental lesson coming from these experiences is that disaster reduction partnerships work best when there is a clear vision, coordination and available funding.
