The Working Session “Underlying Risk Factors” at the 3rd WCDRR, was co-organized by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) and its International Programme on Landslides (IPL) together with UNESCO, the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) and other pertinent organizations.
The causes that create risk and their cumulative effects, as well as the relevant achievements of the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015, were reviewed at the Working Session. Steps to address the principal drivers of vulnerability and exposure and to support hazard and risk assessment were also suggested.
The International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) hosts the Sendai Partnerships 2015-2025 as a voluntary commitment to the United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, Sendai, Japan. The ICL Secretariat in Kyoto, Japan, serves as the Secretariat of the Sendai Partnerships.
