Live Panel on ‘Supporting Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience Practices in Small and Medium Sized Enterprises’
11 noviembre, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The clock is ticking…
… to make the changes needed to stave off the devastating effects of climate change, and there is an urgent need to translate the aspirations and expectations into concrete outcomes. The “what” – net-zero emissions by 2050 – must now come with a “how.” Policymakers have it in their hands to provide clarity on structural changes, regulatory frameworks and financial incentives that businesses need in order to deploy the billions – even trillions in capital expenditure required to keep the global temperature increase to below 1.5°C and to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
In the spirit of the “Race to Resilience”, the purpose of this live panel is to build awareness among SMEs, large corporations, business associations, financiers, and policymakers of critical ways to support SMEs with mainstreaming disaster risk reduction practices in their operations, and thereby, build long-term resilience to multi-hazard risk.
