This study offers a baseline analysis for identifying disaster risk reduction and climate risk management interventions in Central Asia. For this purpose, it complements a capacity assessment undertaken for the Central Asia Center for Disaster Response and Risk Reduction.

The study begins with a description of the sources and methodology employed. The ensuing section offers analysis of exposure to geophysical and meteorological hazards. Then the study covers vulnerabilities related to disaster impacts. The concluding section presents findings and implications for disaster risk reduction initiatives in the region, as well as recommendations for further research and endeavors to strengthen risk assessment.
