This publication takes forward the 12 action points adopted at the First Asian Science and Technology Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction (ASTCDRR) as a contribution to the global ‘Science and Technology Roadmap’. The publication identifies examples and good practices of implementation of these action points, identifying the role of science and technology in each. This is a unique way of bridging the gap between science and policy.
