Assessing vulnerabilities to disaster displacement A good practice review
Predictive models have great potential for forecasting population displacements from climatic and other disasters. But disaster displacement risk assessment approaches often use probabilistic models and big data analysis to make global-level predictions, which have limited utility for planning and delivering local interventions that address vulnerable people’s specific needs. This paper reviews current practice for analysing and assessing disaster displacement risks and presents recommendations on how to effectively integrate a detailed vulnerability analysis to improve operational decision making.

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 calls for the development of regional action plans and strategies. Developed through a consultative process, the Asia-Pacific Action Plan 2021-2024 for the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 aims to accelerate Asia-Pacific’s transformation to risk-informed development, by treating disaster risk reduction as a cross-cutting theme and by increasing investment in prevention, risk reduction, climate change adaptation and anticipatory approaches to enhance resilience.

A green and resilient recovery for Europe
The analysis examines the steps taken to deliver a green and resilient recovery and indicates that current action is not commensurate with the sheer scale of the challenge – the rapid accumulation of disaster risk that is systemic, interconnected and cascading.
This report aims to support the delivery of risk-informed investment by those who make investment decisions, primarily in the financial services sector.
