Rio+20 Side Event: Implications of the triple disaster in Japan in a post-Rio+20 world, 18 June 2012, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Organizing partners: Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (Lead-organizer)
United Nations University - Institute for Sustainability and Peace
United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction
Addressing one of the seven critical issues identified by UNDESA for Rio+20, the purpose of this side event is to reflect on the triple disasters in Japan in 2011 and draw lessons for governance and policy from the international to the local level for developing resilience to hazards in the context of sustainable development in a post-Rio+20 world. Considering that the discussion will focus on contemporary and forward-looking issues, the outcomes should directly inform the ongoing process for developing Sustainable Development Goals, as disaster risk reduction and resilience has been proposed as one potential goal.
