Understanding the Costs and Benefits of Disaster Risk Reduction under Changing Climate Conditions


This report documents in detail the results of two case studies on the costs and benefits of investments in reducing climate-related and other disaster risks-one in Vietnam and one in Nepal-and briefly describes the community based qualitative cost-benefit analyses (CBAs) of some other disaster risk management (DRM) strategies. The three cases cover three different types of strategies for building climate resilience-medium-term, long-term and small-scale-all of which can play a role in the future of developing countries vulnerable to climate change.
