Asian development outlook 2019: Strengthening disaster resilience

Source(s):  Asian Development Bank (ADB)

This report provides an overview of economic and development challenges, with a theme chapter focusing on disaster resilience in 45 economies in Asia and the Pacific - 'developing Asia'. This region is home to more than four-fifths of the people affected by disasters globally in the past two decades. The report discusses how countries can integrate disaster risk reduction into national development and investment plans, spend more on prevention, and pool risk through insurance and reinsurance. It highlights the multiple dividends of investing in disaster resilience.
