Disasters and economics are intimately related. When they occur disasters can significantly impact economies and financial systems at national and global scales. However, investment in mitigation and disaster risk reduction can significantly reduce these costs. More generally, particular economic systems can exacerbate the effects of hazard events and their societal impacts. This session will explore the different ways hazards, vulnerability and disasters interact with financial and economic systems, and how such systems can be used to reduce and mitigate disaster risk.
