The RASOR platform was presented during the UNISDR Science and Technology Conference aimed to create the Science and Technology Partnership and the Science and Technology Road Map for the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

More than 800 scientists, policy makers, practitioners and members of the private sector and civil society from all over the world met in Geneva, Switzerland, from 27 to 29 January, to promote and support the availability and application of science and technology to decision-making in disaster risk reduction.
The RASOR platform concepts were shown during the session: “Use of Science, Technology and Innovation Tool, Methods and Standards to Support the Implementation and Reporting of Sendai Framework”, in response to one of the four priorities of the Sendai Frameworks: “Disaster risk management needs to be based on an understanding of disaster risk in all its dimensions of vulnerability, capacity, exposure of persons and assets, hazard characteristics and the environment”.

In this context, the use of multi-hazard risk analysis tools such as RASOR, can greatly improve the understanding disaster risk and build the foundations to implement risk reduction and resilience-oriented policies.
