Disasters caused by natural hazards increasingly threaten the lives and livelihoods of the world’s poor and disaster-vulnerable populations. Climate change is increasing the risks of disasters and exacerbating their impacts by contributing to more destructive droughts, floods, and storms.

Join global experts and policymakers from both developing and donor countries for a discussion on what it will take to scale up disaster risk reduction to build resilience and meet the challenges ahead.

This event will take place in-person on Wednesday, October 12, from 11:30am to 12:30pm at the World Bank Group Headquarters, room MC C2-350.
