Regional issues in disaster risk reduction, including those related to climate change adaptation, and policies related to mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into socio‐economic development planning

Source(s):  United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)

The document explores the issues related to disaster risk reduction and climate change implications for development in Asia and the Pacific. It discusses options for integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into development, along with potential collaborative efforts that countries may benefit from through regional dialogue and cooperation. It contains: (i) recent trends and impacts of climate change; (ii) challenges to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation; (iii) some examples of adaptation and disaster risk reduction in Asia and the Pacific; and (iv) potential action for Asia and the Pacific.

It calls for regional common perspectives and platforms to strengthen Asia Pacific countries individual national interests towards building resilience from the risks of disasters and effects of climate change, especially in the context of the transition to the second phase of the Hyogo Framework for Action, and from the Millennium Development Goals to the Post‐2015 Sustainable Development Agenda.
