Abstract

Risk governance is a systemic approach to decision and policy-making processes dealing with natural and technological risks, based on principles of cooperation, participation and effective risk management. Multi-risk governance focuses not only on single hazards but considers multiple hazards and their interactions, such as cascading and conjoint effects. During the last decade there is much discourse in science and policy-making about multi-risk governance, including risk assessment and mitigation, which is actual for the Asian-Pacific region, one of the most prone to multi-risk disasters region in the world. India is especially prone to cyclones and tsunami, among other hazards. To be able to understand how scientific knowledge on multi-risk can contribute to decreasing the losses from natural disasters, there is a need to examine the governance frameworks employed in the field of risk assessment, mitigation and management as well as to understand interactions between science and practice in terms of knowledge transfer on multi-risk issues. Scientific evidence shows that these interactions can be influenced by responsibilities at different levels of governance, existing cognitive and behavioral biases in decision-making processes and perceptions of stakeholders on usability of decision-support tools. This session addresses questions such as decision-making processes on multi-risk mitigation prior historical multi-risk disasters, such as the 2004 Great Indian Ocean Tsunami and Sumatra Andaman Earthquake, synergies and conflicts in multi-risk mitigation strategies at national and local governance levels, best practices of multi-risk measures, such as Multi-Purpose Cyclone Shelters, and how existing institutional structures can shape implementation of multi-risk approach.
