This brief explores how new satellite imagery technology can help predict the impact of tropical cyclones in climate vulnerable countries such as Fiji, analyze their potential compounding effects, and improve disaster risk management.
This report aims to examine data on disaster losses related to infrastructure damage and service disruption in Post Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNAs) submitted by nations between 2010 and 2020, and to identify where gaps still exist in PDNA reporting.

This dataset proposes a method that combines different drought indices (SPI, soil moisture anomalies and fAPAR anomalies) in order to identify areas affected by agricultural drought and also areas with the potential to be affected. Drought monitoring is
This study investigates land-use decision-making practices in Christchurch, New Zealand and the surrounding region in response to the mass movement (e.g., rockfall, cliff collapses) and ground surface fault rupture hazards incurred during the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence (CES). Rockfall fatality risk models combining hazard, exposure and vulnerability data were co-produced by earth scientists and decision-makers and formed primary evidence for risk-based land-use decision-making with adaptive capacity.
One of the many opportunities for mobile surveys to support the development sector comes in tracking resilience and post-disaster recovery. Collecting information in disaster-affected regions is often dangerous, costly and time consuming. This is where
Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters
The aim of this paper is (1) to explain the transition of the residential status (i.e., type of places or houses in which affected households stay) after the disaster event and (2) to reveal the factors affecting the housing decisions.
This is the User Guide showing the necessary steps to deploy the post-flood study in the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC). This document is not meant to be used in the field directly with communities or to provide field workers with
This document is aimed to consolidate knowledge related to risk monitoring and disaster management within the ASEAN region, and seeks to provide a space for the sharing of best practices and latest research and analysis.
