Case Study
Learning through Thailand’s Landslide Risk Management Approaches

Background: ASEAN Member States are highly vulnerable to climate change, as is evident from the rise in disaster events and the severity and scale of their impact. Immediate action is required to counteract the growing disaster losses. With this direct effect of climate change on disasters, linking disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation becomes a necessity. Linking integrated hazard and risk assessments with future climate projections can help Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and other developmental planning domains, give appropriate solutions to address future risks. To forge a more resilient and inclusive future, the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), through the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management (ACDM) Working Group of Prevention and Mitigation, with support of the Government of Japan, through the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF), is partnering with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, and CTI Engineering to implement the project on disaster risk reduction by integrating climate change projection into risk assessment through a pilot project. This is in support of the ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response Work Programme 2016-2020.
