SMEs

SMEs account for 99% of all businesses and 1 out of 3 people work in an SME globally, so they are closely linked into community structures. They are therefore critical for the resilience of countries and communities; SMEs recognized drivers of innovation which is key to changing our approach to DRR.  For more information see UNDRR's compendium of SME resources.
