There is a moral imperative to delivering disaster risk reduction (DRR) in violent conflict contexts, where disaster vulnerabilities are high.

This report explores the links between disasters and conflict in Asia, with a view to supporting accelerated implementation of the Asia Regional Plan, Target E and the Sendai Framework. Just under half of all global disasters occurred in the Asia-Pacific region between 2000 and 2017.

The pressure is on for signatories to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (SFDRR) to achieve and demonstrate a reduction in disaster losses by 2030.

The global climate is warming and there is growing evidence that climate variability is increasing in many places; extremes are becoming more frequent and intense in some parts of the world.

This document focuses on the basics of disaster risk reduction (DRR) finance and the opportunities that the Post-2015 development finance landscape can offer. In the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction – the successor to the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) – it is imperative that the discussion on financing is elaborated.
