Moving Capital Towards Proactive Disaster Solutions

Event Details
  • June 25th, Tuesday, 2:45pm - 4:15pm
  • Room 310

The APAC region is uniquely at risk of the threat of natural disasters– a person living in the region is five times more likely to be impacted than other regions.

There is an urgent need in the disaster sector to move funders from a reactive to a proactive focus in their funding. Whilst significant funding is directed to disaster relief, less than 1% of global funding is allocated to disaster risk reduction despite a seven-fold ROI on funding preparedness activities. This session will uncover barriers and share new approaches to strategic capital deployment for scalable solutions and collaborative efforts amongst corporates, private funders, community leaders and social purpose organisations.

Key Takeaways

  • Highlight why it is important for funders and resource providers to look at risk reduction
  • Understand the current landscape and how capital is deployed, or not
  • Establish where are the areas for collaborations and what are some case studies available
