Resilience is everyone's business (GPDRR 2022 Side Event banner)
Resilience is everyone’s business: learning from local experiences to build business and community resilience
The COVID-19 pandemic and other disasters have wreaked havoc through disruption of business operations, supply chains and economic activity. These impacts especially affect Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) that account for more than 90% of businesses and 50% of employers around the world. MSMEs play a major role in global and local economies and, as a major source of families and communities’ income, it is critical to ensure their resilience to sustain livelihoods. The business sector can significantly contribute to protecting children and their families from shocks and stresses of disasters by directing their core expertise, operational capacities and networks to strengthen the resilience of local communities and markets and to enhance the efficiency of humanitarian actions. This session has been formally requested by and will be co-chaired with the Government of Indonesia, the host for GPDRR, to showcase and exchange on business engagement in disaster resilience among governments, private sector, UN, donors and civil society in Indonesia, regionally and globally.

Organized by the Ministry of National Development Planning Indonesia (Badan Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional / BAPPENAS), UNICEF, OCHA and UNDP Indonesia, the Connecting Business initiative and UNDRR-ARISE.
