UNDRR & ECLAC Report: The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic - an opportunity for a systemic approach to disaster risk for the Caribbean


The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates the urgent need for new conceptual and analytical approaches to improve understanding and management of risk dynamics and complex, interconnected risk drivers with cascading effects. Progress will only be accelerated towards risk-informed sustainable development and regeneration by strengthening the understanding of system risk and incorporating systems-based approaches in the design of policies and investments across all sectors, geographies and scales. Improved risk governance is essential. There is an opportunity to build on progress to date.
