Case Studies on mitigating disasters in Asia and the Pacific, What is the Appropriate Mitigation Mix? Structural and non-structural mitigation in Hat Yai, Thailand

The devastating flood of 2000 brought to public attention the need for appropriate actions to minimize future social and economic losses in Hat Yai and Thailand. This case study shows how partners of the Thailand Urban Disaster Mitigation Project (TUDMP) have worked together to plan and implement mitigation measures for Hat Yai. In this pilot initiative, TUDMP s broader goal is to demonstrate to Thailand and other countries in Asia, a methodology for mitigation planning and implementation that promotes safer communities and sustainable development. The experience in Hat Yai highlighted four concurrent steps that are key to effective disaster mitigation. This document includes a) Assess risks b) Plan with communities c) Raise awareness d) Build capacity
