Towards a Resilient ASEAN Volume 1 - Disasters, Climate Change, and Food Security: supporting ASEAN resilience

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 first volume set the stage by focusing on climate change and disasters and by broadly exploring their economic consequences. The detailed assessments and analyses embedded in the chapters cover a wide range of impact categories including agriculture, livestock, fisheries, and urban sectors and seek to identify the immediate actions that need to be taken by ASEAN.
