Understanding Risk 2020: Who’s Missing Information? Towards Inclusive Risk Communication

What makes some information more helpful than others in encouraging people with different abilities and needs (e.g., disabilities, gender, age, literacy, cultural/ethnic backgrounds, etc) to take necessary risk mitigation actions before, during, and after a disaster? This session discusses how to make early warning information accessible to ‘all’ to ensure vulnerable groups have enough time and support to evacuate. The session focuses on inclusive approaches towards risk communication, highlighting global examples that address the different physical, visual or audio needs of individuals. The panel consists of government practitioners, a private tech firm and thematic experts.
