Disaster risk and poverty trends in Jordan, Syria, Yemen: key findings and policy recommendations

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction - Regional Office for Arab States (UNISDR ROAS)

This paper discusses a project in the Arab region aimed at enabling national and regional institutions to develop system wide capacities to monitor, archive and disseminate data on key hazards and vulnerabilities, and periodically assess emerging risk such as national poverty trends. It shows that systematically recording data on disaster loss represents a low cost, high impact strategy for visualizing risk patterns and trends over space and time. This paper focuses on the findings of national disaster loss databases in three of the project's pilot countries: Jordan, Syria, and Yemen.
