Report on Climate Smart Disaster Risk Reduction Interventions in Agriculture Sector – Flood Hazard

Climate Change is inevitable and the agriculture and water sectors are the most vulnerable. Recent studies have shown that due to climate change, the world is moving towards scenarios of either too much, or too little, water. Agriculture is an open system and provides livelihoods for 60% of the world’s population. More than 2.2 billion people depend on agriculture for their livelihoods in Asia. Thus, climate induced natural hazards, especially floods, are likely to affect the sector as well as the livelihoods of the dependent population considerably. This report explores lessons learned, future priorities for climate-adaptive agricultural practices and local initiatives in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand (each with distinct geographical settings in Asia).
