Dilanthi Amaratunga outlines how construction policy will support the UN’s Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Among many communities around the world, disasters pose significant concerns and challenges. With a growing population and expanding infrastructure, the world’s exposure to hazards – both natural and human in origin – is increasing. Effective mitigation and preparedness in the form of pre-disaster planning can greatly reduce the threat posed by hazards of all types.
The risk and resilience guide will translate the SFDRR into meaningful actions that can be adopted by various actors in the construction and property sectors, including professional bodies, industry regulators, clients and construction and property companies.
