The Regional Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Projects will reduce the economic losses due to weak infrastructure, and the risk of loss of life by retrofitting or rebuilding vulnerable structures. Buildings, ridges and urban drainage, for example, are prone to a high-risk of structural failure due to hurricanes, earthquakes and floods.
In order to improve decision-making for reducing climate change vulnerability, the programme will support the creation of a regional backbone technology infrastructure that will allow countries and regional technical entities to collaborate on risk evaluations. More >>>
