Standardization of loss and damage datasets on BIPAD
The research focuses on understanding methods to strengthen loss and damage data of the ‘Damage and Loss’ module in BIPAD. The standardization of loss and damage datasets will help improve the comparability of existing loss databases and reduce uncertainty in the estimates.
This research explores the importance of the loss and damage data in understanding the consequences of a disaster and in decision-making. It highlights the importance of the loss and damage data in helping the federal government understand the trend and patterns and assist to accordingly devise nation wise safety protocols, update existing standards, codes, guidelines, and acts. Similarly, it will help the province and local government prepare disaster risk reduction and management action plans.
