The session opened an online survery for the discussions of two questions:
- What gaps do you see in addressing DRR where you live/work?
- According to you, how could these gaps best be filled?
Among the answers, the "local-based" was emphasized. The panellists and the participants agreed that the local-based approaches, innitiatives and solutions should be highlighted and well considered when planning the risk-informed development.
