‘Risk-Informed Investments’ Vital To Ending Extreme Poverty

Thomas H. Staal, acting assistant administrator for USAID’s Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA), discusses his participation in last week’s Third U.N. World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan. He highlights three themes of the conference — building resilience, promoting local solutions, and fostering inclusion — and concludes, “As we look towards the post-2015 development agenda, Sendai reminded us that we must make risk-informed investments if we are to achieve our goal of ending extreme poverty” (3/20).
