Reducing the risk of protracted and multiple disaster displacements in Asia-Pacific

This report explores multiple and protracted displacements caused by natural hazard-related disasters in Asia-Pacific, including those influenced by climate change and climate variability. The report argues that preventing protracted and/or multiple disaster displacements require a spectrum of actions, consideration of protection needs and long-term developmental processes that are risk-informed and lay the foundations to secure and uphold basic human rights.

This paper is intended for policy-makers and UN and operational agencies working in AsiaPacific to reduce the risk of natural hazard-related disasters, address the impacts of such events and build people’s resilience to ongoing or future hazards. The report was produced in partnership with the Overseas Development Institute. The recommendations of the paper are:

  1. Systematically adopt existing guidelines and principles;
  2. Bridge data gaps and enhance evidence on disaster displacement;
  3. Integrate disaster displacement risk across the disaster risk management cycle;
  4. Enhance inclusive policies and social safety nets to reduce risk;
  5. Pursue a whole-of-government approach to promote risk-informed sustainable development and reduce the risk of disaster displacement.
