    Recognizing that disasters are occurring at an ever faster rate despite progress being made in how we prepare and respond to them, we are continuously being caught-out by new extremes and new emerging threats. Aiming to contribute to the solutions our experts Jack O’ Connor and Caitlyn Eberle published an article for the IISD SDG Knowledge Hub to highlight how disasters, their root causes, drivers, impacts and solutions are interconnected.

    The authors are part of the research team that launched the Interconnected Disaster Risk Report 2021/2022 in August. The report analyses ten disasters each year and researches how they are interconnected with each other and with human actions. It seeks to explain the interconnections that might otherwise be missed, and describes how we can develop solutions to use these connections to our advantage.

    The SDG Knowledge Hub is an online resource center for news and commentary regarding the implementation of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
