Strengthening Climate Resilience: the Southeast Asian Experience

Abstract

This publication looks at the Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management (CSDRM) approach in the Southeast Asian context. It addresses why CSDRM is relevant for the region; what regionally specific challenges and opportunities exist; and how the CSDRM approach has evolved within the region. Also in the publication are important lessons gained from the in-depth self assessments conducted by SCR Southeast Asia partners and exchanges shared at the SCR learning platforms in the three countries. These focus on: 1. Tackling current disaster risks and uncertainties, but not potential risks resulting from climate change; 2. Strengthening coping capacities versus strengthening adaptive capacities; 3. Addressing poverty and vulnerability in a manner that contributes to adaptive and mitigation capacities; and 4. Reclaiming the power to innovate.
