INFORM Subnational Risk Index in Europe & Central Asia

 14:00 - 15:30 CET
 24 November 2021
 EFDRR Virtual Platform

The European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction (EFDRR) forms the regional platform structure of Europe. The triennial EFDRR has established itself as an important vehicle to address the regional disaster risk challenges. It serves as a forum for other stakeholders to take a shared responsibility and make actionable commitments to reduce disaster risk. The conference, true to the multi-stakeholder spirit of the Sendai Framework, enables governments and stakeholders to exchange experiences on successful practices and innovative approaches to prevent, reduce and manage disaster risk. This results in forward looking action plans based on a mutual sharing status of DRR implementation.

UNDRR Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (ROECA) with coordination of the Center on Emergency Situations and Disaster Risk Reduction (CESDRR) and the Secretariat of Disaster Preparedness and Prevention Initiative for South Eastern Europe (DPPI SEE) and support from the Joint Research Center of European Commission (JRC EC) initiated the update of the subnational INFORM risk index for Caucasus and Central Asia (8 countries) and the establishment of the subnational INFORM risk index for South Eastern Europe (3 countries). The results of subnational INFORM risk index for both regions aim to develop a common understanding of risk, highlight areas most at risk and contribute to understanding of the underlying risk drivers. The findings can be used to address the root causes of risk, and improve DRR strategies at the regional and national level for a long term risk reduction perspective.
