The majority of Turkiye’s population, and critical economic sectors and industrial zones are highly exposed to earthquakes, landslides, flooding, as well as extreme weather events. Enhancing disaster risk reduction and management capability remains a priority. The involvement of non-traditional humanitarian actors such as the private sector will be key in strengthening coping capacities. It was for this reason that Business for Goals Platform (B4G) and the Turkish Enterprise and Business Confederation (TÜRKONFED) launched the Connecting Business initiative (CBi) platform in the country to support the Turkish business community in disaster and climate resilience.
Within the scope of Business Climate Resilience Project, the Business for Goals Platform together with TÜRKONFED, and the Connecting Business initiative (CBi) will organize this online event called “Global Best Practices: Private Sector Innovations and Technologies for Disaster Risk Management”. This session will take place on 7th of June, Tuesday between 10.00 am and 11.30 am (UTC +3) showcasing examples and global best practices from the private sector on the application of innovation and technologies for disaster risk management.
The session aims to showcase concrete examples and global best practices on the use of innovation and technologies from the private sector for disaster risk management. Through these examples, a discussion on lessons learnt will be facilitated to identify opportunities for the application of innovation and technologies in their own disaster management activities.
