Building Partnerships for Sustainable Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) for All Hazards
About APRU Multi-Hazards
40% of the world’s natural disaster events and 90% of the world’s earthquakes occur in the Asia Pacific. In a region of inevitable disaster, improving the coordination and sharing of knowledge across borders is essential to deliver effective disaster reduction and recovery measures.
As one of the most disaster-prone regions in the world, frequent natural hazards – from tsunamis to floods to volcanic eruptions- threaten the lives and livelihoods of millions of people around the Pacific Rim and result in catastrophic destruction and damage.
The losses and impacts that characterize disasters have much to do with the exposure and vulnerability of people and places as they do with the severity of the hazard event. While natural hazards cannot be eliminated by sharing best practices., knowledge and research, we can better understand risk and minimize the threat to human life.
Over the past decade, the Multi-Hazards Hub hosted by Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan has worked to harness the collective capabilities of APRU universities for cutting-edge research on the shared threat of natural hazards facing the region.
APRU collaborates with its members and partners to understand how academics, policy leaders, government, and communities, can work together to facilitate disaster risk reduction and recovery. Whether it is enhancing the reach of the Sendai Framework or sharing expertise to mitigate the danger in countries most vulnerable to disaster risks, together we can build a more resilient Asia Pacific.
