Frontiers of Water-Related Disaster Management and the Way Forward

Effective governance is one of the most essential elements of an overall disaster risk management strategy. Our world has been witnessing a consistent rise in water-related disasters in recent years. Water-related disasters refer to meteorological events such as cyclones and storms; hydrological events such as floods; and climatological events such as extreme temperatures, drought, and forest fires. Such disasters derail sustainable development, making it paramount to embed water-related disaster resilience into the Sustainable Development Goals. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has made disaster risk reduction even more challenging.
