The conferences and workshops will allow participants to reflect and exchange on resilience. The summit will therefore be structured around four central themes, which are not exclusive but synergistic.


UNDERSTAND
How do stakeholders become aware and conscious of disaster risks? How is awareness perceived by others? What knowledge do we have about risk and the multi-hazard picture?

  • The capacities and vulnerabilities of individuals, groups and communities;
  • Costs and financing associated with disasters;
  • Risk communication and perception;
  • Interactions between hazards and their impacts.


LEARN
What are the learnings before, during and after disasters? How do we achieve resilience as individuals, organizations, communities?

  • Learning from disasters: measuring successes and failures, comparing with other cases, sharing lessons learned;
  • Identifying the determinants and components of resilience;
  • Spin-offs of resilience (e.g., preservation of heritage, ecosystems, strategic logic of organizations, etc.);
  • Valuing resilience.


MOBILIZE
How to mobilize, gather, engage collectively and inclusively for resilience?

  • Social capital and social mobilization;
  • Partnerships including mutual aid, networks, collaborative approaches, platforms and communities of practice;
  • The commitment of actors: decision makers, managers, stakeholders, researchers, etc;
  • New technologies and social networks.


ACT
What programs and interventions to build resilience? What actions should be taken to promote resilience?

  • Territorial planning and development;
  • The challenges of implementing resilience;
  • Alerting the population and public communication;
  • The response of actors during a disaster;
  • Reconstruction of living environments (social, economic, physical);
  • The community at the center of the action.
