This session aims to take stock of new and emerging technologies and decision support tools and explore how these are used within and across communities to understand and communicate risk. Particularly, how can local authorities such as municipal governments and First Nations collaborate to improve inter-community awareness? How can we bridge capacity to use and benefit from these tools across the Georgia Basin region? What role do these tools play in supporting funding choices and access to funding, such as the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP), which is meant to fill a critical gap in Canada’s ability to effectively mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from hazard events.
Sendai theme: Priority 1: Understanding disaster risk, Priority 2: Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk
