PCRAFI Program - Phase II: Enhancing the financial resilience of Pacific Island countries against natural disaster and climate riskWorld Bank, 2016This brief outlines the current PCRAFI program, phase II that builds on the initial phase of the Pacific Catastrophe Risk Assessment and Financing Initiative (PCRAFI), a joint initiative of the World Bank, SPC, and the Asian Development Bank with financial support from the Government of Japan, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and the European Union.DocumentUniversity of East Anglia, 2015This working paper explores the inequality of overconsumption within countries with a specific focus on HNWIs. This complements existing research that makes comparisons between countries based on national level indicators such as the Gini coefficient and per capita carbon footprints and their implications for climate. [adaapted from source]DocumentCARE USA, 2015This brief describes a climate-integrated Community-based Early Warning System implemented by the Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) in Dakoro, Niger. Integration of Community-based adaptation and disaster risk reduction (DRR) is important in a context of chronic vulnerability, recurring emergencies and increasingly unpredictable and extreme weather events associated with climate change.DocumentInstitute of Population Studies, Exeter, 2015This report describes research to create the first rock glacier inventory for Bolivia, and highlights the need to prioritize the preservation of areas where rock glaciers are located in the interests of water security for vulnerable populations.DocumentVictoria University of Wellington, 2016What shapes people’s disaster risk exposure? Using a sub-national (provincial) panel econometric and deductive approach the researchers answer this question by focussing on tropical cyclones, and using the Philippines as a case study for our measurement approach.Document
Climate smart disaster risk management in conflict affected areas: the case of Trincomalee District, Sri LankaPractical Action [Intermediate Technology Development Group], 2010As climate change is understood to be one of many drivers of vulnerability, this case study examines how the CSDRM approach can be applied in Trincomalee District in the eastern province of Sri Lanka where people face conflict, displacement and disasters.DocumentPhilippine Institute for Development Studies, 2005The term tropical cyclone is called hurricane over the Atlantic Ocean, cyclone over the Indian Ocean and typhoon over the Pacific Ocean which includes the Philippines. However it is known, though, what matters is knowing an incoming tropical cyclone's intensity and possible extent of damage plus, of course, its pattern of frequency and season, and the path of potential destruction.DocumentPhilippine Institute for Development Studies, 2005The term tropical cyclone is called hurricane over the Atlantic Ocean, cyclone over the Indian Ocean and typhoon over the Pacific Ocean which includes the Philippines.

Is disaster risk reduction spending driven by the occurrence of natural disasters? Evidence from PeruBanco Interamericano de Desarrollo / Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), 2014This paper studies the allocation of total disaster risk reduction public spending among regions in Peru. The main objective of this work is to identify the main determinants of the distribution of these resources, and for this purpose an index of historical physical impacts of natural disasters, social vulnerability, and institutional capacity was created.
