国際防災・人道支援フォーラム実行委員会
2021 年8 月に公表された気候変動に関する政府間パネル(IPCC)の最新の報告書でも今後地球温暖化の進行に伴い、世界の多くの地域で大雨の強度・頻度が増加するとされており、洪水・土砂崩れなどの住民の生命に関わる自然災害の発生リスクが一層高まると考えられます。日本では、防災・災害情報や避難を促す仕組みの改良を重ね、日々、努力を積み重ねてきましたが、住民の避難行動に結びついていないとの指摘があります。そこで、今回のフォーラムでは、専門家・実務者が集まり、海外からの論者にも事例を紹介してもらうなどして、新たな災害環境を踏まえた「防災・災害情報と避難~地球温暖化への適応」をテーマに議論し、災害多発・防災先進国・日本の責務として、国内外に発信します。

A new UNESCAP report analyses the impact of disasters on SIDS and maps out the impact on a cluster of SDGs. While the Pacific SIDS are heavily reliant on ocean resources, most of the disasters that affect them are oceanogenic. To build resilient SIDS, there is a need to connect the dots - science, geospatial data, statistics, and policy interfaces.
