Disaster Risk Reduction: The role of geological survey organizations in understanding risk and informing risk reduction actions

Geological Survey Organizations (GSOs) play a critical role in understanding geo-hazards and risks as a required component for designing and implementing disaster risk management policies and programs. This forum will provide three virtual workshops to support the exchange of information among executives and senior managers on the role of GSOs in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) at a National Level. The forum will provide a high level overview of the role of GSOs in disaster risk reduction, including strategies, awareness of and advocacy on hazards and risks, financial risk management, building codes, and early warning systems.
