Venue : UNESCO pavilion,Civil Society Area in Green Zone, COP22

In collaboration with the UNESCO, GRF Davos is organizing a Session on Science & Technology and Policy making for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation – essential linkage for comprehensive and effective policy harmonization.

The session focuses on how to bring together science, policy, and practice? One of the key questions for enhancing disaster resilience. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, adopted by UN General Assembly, indicates unprecedented emphasis onthe role of science and technology in disaster risk reduction. It also calls for a paradigm shift through dedicated action to tackle underlying disaster risk driversincluding gender issues, disabled people, migrants, etc being particularly affectedby disasters. Climate change will aggravate the situation, and harmonizing efforts toimprove disaster resilience and strengthen climate adaptation will become key. This session is to discuss how science and technology can maximize their impact toreducing disaster risks and losses and adapting to climate change in the context of aharmonized policy making process.
