About the meeting

The consultative meeting – jointly organised by National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Authority (NDRRMA) and ICIMOD – aims to refine the methodology of the risk assessment framework drafted by ICIMOD and partners.  We will have experts from a variety of thematic groups (and from different countries) discussing and providing inputs. In doing so, they will be guided by the following action-related questions and seeking answers and solutions from a multi-hazard perspective

  • What are the new methodologies related to Multi-hazard Risk and Loss and Damage Assessment Framework (MHRAF & LnDF)?
  • What are the challenges to refining these methodologies in the data-scarce region?
  • How can the gap between knowledge and practice be addressed?

Although framed largely as a conference, the event will be conducted in both a conference format (for sharing knowledge and information) and a workshop format (for discussion on the methodology).

 

Objectives

Our broad objective is to develop a multi-hazard risk and loss and damage framework for the HKH region.

Specific objectives include:

  • Presentations on the multi-hazard risk assessment and loss and damage framework developed by ICIMOD
  • Learning from regional and international experts on existing methodologies and frameworks
  • Discussions on existing frameworks applicable to the HKH region
  • Understanding challenges and capturing opportunities
