Disaster risk reduction and emergency management - governmental practice in Sweden

Abstract [en]

It is important to reduce a society's vulnerability to the effects of natural disasters. Natural disasters cause great damage, both from a human and from an economical perspective. Considering the ongoing climate change, increased exploitation and increasing pressure on land resources, natural disasters and their consequences are expected to increase. There are two major ways to reduce vulnerability and strengthen societal resilience; by preventative measures to reduce the risk of disaster occurrence and thus avoid serious consequences, and/or by strengthening societal preparedness to the occurrence of a disaster. The Swedish Geotechnical Institute (SGI) is a governmental agency that has developed an approach towards disaster risk reduction and emergency management related to landslides, which works both ways to reduce vulnerability. The purpose of this paper is to describe this approach to disaster risk reduction and emergency management.
