Managing the risks of disasters in East Asia and the Pacific:

This report explores practical approaches to building urban resilience, focusing on tools and methodologies that can facilitate the use of risk information in public infrastructure investment and urban management decisions as integral elements of reducing disaster and climate risks. It demonstrates that risk-based methodology focused on building urban resilience can be implemented within a range of contexts, with risk assessments as crucial tools for decision-makers. It encourages national, local and city level governments to invest in geospatial risk information, as well as making risk information available in sustainable and user friendly format so that the whole community of relevant stakeholders can actively participate in disaster risk reduction and prevention. This is study considers lessons learned from the cities of Jakarta, Indonesia and Can Tho, Viet Nam.
