Towards a Resilient ASEAN Volume 2 - Advancing Disaster Resilience and Climate Change Adaption: roadmap and options for implementation

Subtitle :

Abstract :
Climate change tends to increase the frequency and intensity of weather-related natural disasters, which put many people at risk. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is more vulnerable to these risks than any other region due to its dependence on natural resources. Economic and social impacts further increase the vulnerability of food value chains and isolated communities and tend to retard development and increase disparity nationally and regionwide. This book addresses the distributional effects of disasters and climate change on food systems, people, and places, introducing concepts of resilience and methods for analysis and illustrating the roadmaps for adaptation at the local, sectoral, national, and regional levels. The chapters in the second volume discuss response mechanisms to climate change and disaster resilience in terms of sectoral preparedness, information sharing, institution building, and financial resource mobilisation.
