Das Werk ist Teil der Reihe: Disaster Risk Reduction


The HKH region is highly vulnerable to earthquake and water-induces disasters. This fragile mountain region is under the tremendous stress of climate change and land-use degradation that accelerate flash floods, river-line floods, erosion, wet mass movements during monsoon periods and drought in non-monsoon period. With the backdrop of intensifying disasters and in the absence of a focused documentation of DRR issues in the HKH region, this book assembles a comprehensive body of knowledge in the form of an edited volume. The main purpose and objective of this publication is to connect existing data, research, conceptual work, practical cases on risk, resilience and risk reduction from the HKH region under a common analytical umbrella. The main expected outcome is to contribute to advance disaster resilience and risk reduction in the HKH region. It should attract the attention of policy makers, donors and researchers to the disaster issues in the HKH region.
