Disaster Risk Reduction by Integrating Climate Change Projection
ASEAN suffers damage in excess of US$4.4 billion each year on average as a consequence of disasters resulting from natural hazards, including flood, storm, rain-induced landslide and drought, which makes more than 50% of total global disaster fatalities.
2018 - 2021
RBPs are conceptualized as units for flood and landslide risk assessment using the river basin approach and integral part of the capacity building component of this project where most appropriate tools and techniques of landslide and flood risk assessment in a participatory manner will be applied.
Four RBP sites were established to demonstrate landslide and flood risk assessment in Myanmar and Lao PDR. In each site, RBP team was established involving the key agencies (disaster, meteorology, hydrology, geology) and a team of experts to conduct risk assessment with the participation of local people in pilot sites. Relevant experts from AMS engage in the pilot demonstration through their feedback on the methodological approach and strategy building. The pilots serve as a model case for interactive learning while addressing the on-the-ground risk assessment and disaster risk planning challenges, including potential climate change impacts.
“ Commitment to collaborative action for disaster risk reduction can generate learning and improved practice for all stakeholders ”
