IDRiM 2023

The South Asia region forms an emblematic interface of development and risks to disasters, with risks being further projected to increase. Exposure and vulnerability to hazards and their consequential impacts are being observed in the region. Frequent disasters are exacerbating existing impacts and creating new ones. Rapidly growing population, contemporary climate change, frequent hazards, and atmospheric warming are unprecedented in this region thus compromising the well-being of hundreds of millions of people and generating systemic risks. Integrated Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is a holistic approach to reducing the impact of disasters and promoting sustainable development. It recognizes the interlinkages between disaster risk, poverty, and sustainable development and aims to integrate disaster risk reduction into development policies, plans, and activities. The goal is to build resilience, reduce vulnerability, and promote inclusive and sustainable development.
