January 17, 2019

On January 14, 2019 RESPECT was presented at a regular Meeting of the Austrian Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (Austrian Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction – ASDR). The aim of the cooperation of the platform is to exchange experiences and concepts, coordinate the strategies of the individual institutions, create synergies in the implementation of the tasks of each participant and joint developments in the context of crisis intervention and prevention. The objective is to implement the United Nations Sendai Framework Program 2015-2030 in Austria.

The overarching goal of the RESPECT project, namely supporting the implementation of a comprehensive climate risk management (CRM) in Austria, is seen as relevant for the activities of the platform by which CRM can be made available to a broader audience.
