Status of science and technology in disaster risk reduction in Asia-Pacific 2020
The Status of Science and Technology report is an important step for monitoring the progress in the implementation of the Sendai Framework and an attempt to capture some of the progress across geographies, stakeholders, and disciplines towards the application of science and technology towards risk reduction in Asia-Pacific.
Developed by a group of individuals from the UNDRR Asia-Pacific Science, Technology and Academia Advisory Group (AP-STAAG), this report is based on a qualitative survey and submission of case studies on the application of science and technology for disaster risk reduction. A total of 69 responses were received representing government, UN agencies, a network of universities, and the U-Inspire Alliance. A total of 23 case studies were also received from 11 countries, in addition to four case studies on specific themes.
