Asia Pacific Risk & Resilience Portal
Posted byCAKE Team
The Risk and Resilience Portal, under the Asia Pacific Disaster Resilience Network, has been established to deepen policymakers' understanding of cascading risks from the disaster-climate-health nexus, provide evidence based analytics to strengthen regional cooperation frameworks to conduct and produce actionable risk assessments, and strengthen capacity of multiple sectoral ministries to develop risk informed planning and budgeting.
The portal will answer four key questions on the emerging disaster-climate-health riskscape.
- Where are the risk hotspots of cascading hazards
- What are the current and future economic losses from cascading hazards
- How much will it cost countries, the subregions, and the region to adapt to the new riskscape
- What are the adaptation priorities for countries, sub-regions and the region
Data Explorer: The portal will answer four key questions on the emerging disaster-climate-health riskscape. Where are the risk hotspots of cascading hazards. What are the current and future economic losses from cascading hazards. How much will it cost countries, the subregions, and the region to adapt to the new riskscape. What are the adaptation priorities for countries, sub-regions and the region.
- Hazard Hotspots: Examine the data on hazard exposure and assess the impacts and vulnerabilities for these hazards to develop crisis management and risk mitigation plans helping in hazard preparedness
- Economic Impact: A tool providing an overview of direct economic losses relative to global and gross domestic product as a result of hazards and natural disasters over the years across various regions in Asia-Pacific.
- Adaptation Cost and Priorities: Access the graphs and information on cost and priorities of climate adaptation in different Asia-Pacific subregions in order to strengthen resilience, warning systems and preparedness mechanisms.
Decision Support System: The Decision Support System provides contextual analysis of variety of hazard, risk and vulnerability, socio-economic information to support informed decision making. Using different tools, users can easily understand the location of risky areas, what makes them risky and finally identify the means for reducing and adapting to those risks.
