Building Resilience - Integration Climate and Disaster Risk into Resilience
Weather-related events hurt rich and poor countries alike. They can slam the brakes on economic growth and cripple markets. But how we fare after disaster strikes depends very much on where in the world we live, and how. The more vulnerable and less prepared our nations, communities and households are, the more we suffer.If we live in coastal or water scarce areas, on steep slopes, the more we are at risk. If our house is made of sturdy materials, the less we are likely to be affected. However, if we are poor or we live in a poor country, the more likely we are to lose our lives.
