Making an Impact in Disaster Response, Recovery and Resilience
This business briefing demonstrates how business can make a greater impact with their contributions to disaster response and recovery. And how strategic partnerships between businesses and the humanitarian sector can increase disaster resilience in vulnerable communities and provide significant business opportunities. This is especially important for businesses operating in the world’s most disaster-prone region – Asia-Pacific. The predicted increase in the occurrence of disasters will have social, political, and economic repercussions that can leave societies and markets unstable.
