This report outlines the causes and consequences of climate-induced displacement, and how the triple injustice of climate change, poverty and gender inequality must be met by transformative action: to support more gender-equal and resilient communities in sustainable environments. In this report,...

Protecting the most vulnerable to cascading risks from climate extremes and the COVID-19 in South...

South Asia is at a crossroad of the cascading risks emanating from the rapid spread of the Coronavirus Disease-19 (COVID-19) and climate extremes in monsoon months. Every year, people in the subregion suffer from various climate hazards such as floods, droughts, tropical cyclones and heat waves....

COVID-19 impact and policy responses in the Hindu Kush Himalaya

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted life in the HKH and compounded the vulnerabilities of mountain communities already impacted by climate change. However, it also presents an opportunity for concrete actions toward the transformation necessary for a more resilient and inclusive HKH. In this...

National Adaptation Plans in focus: Lessons from Nepal

This country brief focuses on the process to formulate and implement National Adaptation Plans in Nepal. The groundwork for supporting NAPs is considered, covering the policy, planning and budgetary framework, priority adaptation sectors, climate assessments, the implementation of adaptation...

Anticipatory action for livelihood protection: a collective endeavour

The term ‘anticipatory action’ refers to actions triggered before a crisis in order to mitigate the worst effects, or even avoid a crisis altogether. While substantial progress has been made in reducing the devastating impacts of drought, most anticipatory actions taken to protect livelihoods...

Quantitative assessment of flood risk with evaluation of the effectiveness of dam operation for...

Because property damage and loss of life owing to floods have increased in many countries in recent years, accurate assessment of flood risk is urgently needed for effective flood management. Improving the assessment of flood risk requires considering the impact of dam operation for flood control...

Catchment-scale flood hazard mapping and flood vulnerability analysis of residential buildings:...

This study considers the Khando River (a tributary of Koshi River) in eastern Nepal. It is focused on quantify the hazard and vulnerabilities across one of the frequently flooding catchments, i.e. Khando River, we conducted flood hazard assessment for 20, 50, 100, and 200 years return periods....

Strategic Priorities of the Government of Nepal in Managing Climate and Disaster Risk

The Government of Nepal has identified four overarching goals for its disaster risk financing strategy. These are aligned to the 15th Development Plan which articulates a clear goal of a “safe and resilient Nepal from disaster risk”. Based on this overarching goal, as well as initial...

The ‘triple dividend’ of early warning systems: evidence from Tanzania’s coastal areas

Early warning systems (EWSs) have been effective in reducing loss of life and injury associated with extreme weather events, but it is less clear what influence they have on other household decisions. Some research has identified increased productivity in rainfed farming from using weather and...

The First National Flood Risk Assessment

The First Street Foundation Flood Model represents the culmination of decades of research and development made possible by building upon existing knowledge and frameworks regularly referenced in the identification of flood risk. The outcome of this work is the development of a high precision,...

When the disaster strikes: Gendered (im)mobility in Bangladesh

Gender influences people’s behaviour in various ways. This study investigates gendered (im)mobility during cyclone strikes in Bangladesh. During such strikes people have described being unable to move away from environmentally high-risk locations and situations. The Q-based Discourse Analysis...

Practitioner approaches to measuring community resilience: The analysis of the resilience of...

To be useful for operational programs, measures of resilience must not just be valid, but be easy to use and useful. Unfortunately, while resilience measurement techniques have progressed tremendously over the past decade, most progress has been on improving validity rather than utility and ease...

Building Flood Resilience in a Changing Climate

Our studies on flood risk management systems in the United States, Germany and England reveal that despite many activities by stakeholders, current approaches do not adequately factor in the changing risk landscape linked to climate change, land-use planning and development practices. The...

Flood Resilience in Bangladesh

Concern Worldwide has been working with communities in Bangladesh as part of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance. This programme aims to improve the safety of communities and build their ability to meet their basic needs during floods, as well as working to prevent the negative impact of floods...

Monsoon, floods and COVID-19: building community resilience in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is at the forefront of the fight against climate change. Extreme weather events, the annual monsoon season, and the health and economic impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic are hitting communities hard. Without urgent action by the government and donors, the impact of monsoon hazards...

Albania Country Briefing

Albania is a flood-prone country that has faced changing rainfall patterns with stronger and longer rainfall periods over the past 15 years. The inadequate infrastructure increases the severity of floods every few years in the northern part of Albania (especially in the fertile, low-lying areas...

Keeping an eye on natural hazards: Lessons learned to become more resilient

The number of disasters and their magnitude are growing at an unprecedented rate. While there has been a decline in disaster mortality (in relative terms) over the last decade, in most places there has not been significant success in halting the substantial increase in economic losses. This...

A dual disaster handbook: 6 recommendations for local leaders responding to floods during Covid-19

In 2020, local leaders across the United States will likely face an unprecedented threat that requires significant collective action: a flood that hits during the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout. This “dual disaster” will likely be widespread: 128 million Americans are at risk of...

Using the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities Tool

Plan Nicaragua has been using the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities to establish current levels of resilience and identify areas for improvement in flood prone communities in Nicaragua. This video provides an overview of the process and gives an opportunity to hear from staff an...

A method for monetising the mental health costs of flooding

Recent research from Public Health England (PHE) shows that people that experience flooding in their homes can suffer from mental health illnesses, including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. This has an economic impact, including costs to the health service and lost days at...
