How does climate change impact enterprises big and small? This section shares the latest research and news in disaster risk reduction for the ARISE network and beyond, drawing on sources curated by the UNDRR.

ARISE, the Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies, is a network of private sector entities led by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).  UNDRR is the United Nations focal point for disaster risk reduction. UNDRR oversees the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, supporting countries in its implementation, monitoring and sharing what works in reducing existing risk and preventing the creation of new risk. The Sendai Framework specifically encourages action from private sector financial institutions, including financial regulators and accounting bodies and SMEs to  integrate disaster risk reduction into business models and practices.

In joining the ARISE, private sector companies voluntarily commit to support and implement the Sendai Framework, aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Paris Climate Agreement, New Urban Agenda and Agenda for Humanity.
