Asia-Pacific disaster report 2022 for ESCAP subregions: pathways to adaptation and resilience in South and South‑West Asia

Resilience in a Riskier World: Managing Systemic Risks from Biological and Other Natural Hazards, the Asia Pacific Disaster Report 2021 captured a comprehensive picture of the complexity of disaster risk landscape (‘riskscape’) from natural and biological hazards in the Asia-Pacific region. Following the release of the APDR at the seventh session of the ESCAP inter-governmental Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction in August 2021, the report was customized for each of the five ESCAP subregions, namely East and North-East Asia, North and Central Asia, South-East Asia, South and South-West Asia and the Pacific. The current report highlights the key takeaways for South and South-West Asia.
