Case studies: Building Resilience to the Risk of Compound and Cascading Disasters in the Context of Climate Change

As climate change will lead to more severe and frequent weather-related hazards, the need to deal with compound and cascading disasters has become an emerging issue. The e-learning course “Building resilience to compound and cascading disaster risks” under AP-PLAT capacity development programs objects for the local/national government officers to build capacities to implement specific measures to build resilience against such disaster risks. As a supplemental material to four video lessons, this booklet compiles examples of compound and cascading disasters from around the world. The learners can gain on-the-ground knowledge from the concrete cases aiming to strengthen the resilience of their country or local community against compound and cascading disasters.
