Integrative, sustainable risk management
The aim of the transdisciplinary research project MYrisk is to improve the risk prevention of institutions and households and to reduce the consequences of multiple risks in Yangon, Myanmar. Scientific concepts of integrative, sustainable risk management are developed and made feasible for other (mega)cities.
A holistic risk management system will be developed with the participation of decision makers from government, administration, scientific partners, the private sector and civil society in the megacity of Yangon as well as Nay Pyi Taw, Mandalay, Taunggyi and Mawlamyine. This includes a metadata inventory, a cooperation and communication concept of institutional risk prevention, culturally adapted risk prevention (awareness and education programmes, protection of personal documents), a precautionary concept for system-relevant small/medium-sized enterprises (protection of critical infrastructure) and exchange platforms for sustainable »build back better« strategies.
