Building on the findings of GAR09 and GAR11, the third Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR13) explores why increasing disaster risks represent a growing problem for the economic and business community at different scales.


GAR 2013 highlights the interdependence of the public and private sector, as well as the role of the latter as an actor and partner in improved risk governance. Moreover, it goes beyond the current emphasis on response and preparedness, and identifies opportunities for the creation of shared value for business and society.
