Disaster Risk in Asia and the Pacific Assessment, Management and Finance

Published by: ADB

Globalization and technology deepen value chains and production networks to the great benefit of producers and consumers—both domestic and foreign. But it also means that, above the direct human cost and immediate structural damage, preparation and response to disasters must cover everything from local crop and fishing fleet damage to domestic and global supply chain disruptions—supplies of gadgets in New York shops are affected by floods in Thailand. In short, disaster risk has a local and global impact. That is why managing and financing that risk is in everyone’s interest.
