17 April: Disaster risk reduction and sustainable development

17 April, 2.30pm and 5.30pm. Burlington House, London

Natural hazards - landslides, earthquakes, volcanic events - have a significant impact on lives, livelihoods and economic growth, disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable in society and threatening social and economic development progress.

Conversely, challenges of poverty, inequality, resource consumption and urbanisation all contribute to disaster risk, and must be addressed if we are to ensure resilient and sustainable communities. Disaster risk reduction is therefore at the centre of the UN development agenda and embedded into the Sustainable Development Goals.

This talk by British Geological Survey’s Jeol Gill will explore the links between disaster risk reduction and sustainable development, through the emerging research theme of “multi-hazard” approaches.
