The steady increase in climate related disasters such as floods, cyclones, storm surges and drought have increased the exposure and vulnerability of communities, their livelihoods, physical infrastructure and economic networks. An increasing hazard risk results in higher human and economic losses from disaster events.

Your capacity to encourage adaptation to changing climate-related hazards and improved resilience and disaster preparedness will be enhanced.
