People at risk need to understand what hazards they face and what to do about them. While advances in science and technology help disaster management agencies know more about risks than ever before, the practice of communicating risks has not kept pace with more sophisticated and creative approaches used in other sectors such as health and governance.
How can effective dialogue inform decisions at every level for risk assessment, urban and rural planning, preparedness and early warning? What are the key elements of a functioning communication environment for DRR? What are the obstacles and how can we overcome them to communicate risk effectively? The session used the Glisser platform to maximise audience interactivity.
