Leave No One Behind: Disaster Resilience for Sustainable Development – Asia-Pacific Disaster Report 2017
Asia and the Pacific is the region most affected by natural disasters. These disasters hit the poorest countries and communities hardest. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development aims to reach everyone – to leave no one behind. If governments are to protect their most vulnerable people, they must ensure that national development strategies are firmly grounded in disaster resilience. This report considers: the regions most at risk, the impacts on poverty and inequality, action for resilience in agriculture, resilience and climate change, pathways to prevention and policies, actions and tools.
