From Disaster Risk Gateway
Jump to: navigation, search

The aim of the Disaster Risk Gateway is to provide a platform for the international disaster risk community to find and share good practices, frameworks, methods, models and tools for assessing and managing disaster risk.

The core structure has been written by the British Geological Survey (BGS) as part of the MYRIAD-EU project. Initial content has been provided by MYRIAD-EU project partners and uploaded by BGS. We welcome new content from researchers and practitioners across the disaster risk community, which can be submitted here.

The articles are grouped into Multi-hazard Risk Assessment and Multi-hazard Risk Management according to details and key words provided with submissions. We acknowledge the overlap between this categorisation. Multi-hazard Risk Assessment approaches speak to understanding disaster risk, the first priority for action of the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Multi-hazard Risk Management approaches speak to governance and policy, and can include Multi-hazard Risk Assessment approaches.
