Private Sector DRR

Now supply chains are closely intertwined that a single disaster could affect economic activities of the entire region or world. One of the lessons learned from past catastrophic disasters such as the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, the Great East Japan Earthquake and flooding in Thailand, is that the private sector plays a critical role in reducing economic damage and regional impacts when they are well prepared.
