From Risk to Resilience - Benefits and Costs of Disaster Risk Reduction


The purpose of the project on "Risk to Resilience" is to evaluate the benefits and costs of disaster risk reduction across a series of case areas in India, Nepal and Pakistan. It focuses on water related disasters and the manner in which they may change as a consequence of climate change. The objective has been to develop a suite of methods and analytical cases that both illustrate how the benefits and costs of different risk reduction strategies can be evaluated under different climate scenarios and also generate analytical results for the risk reduction strategies evaluated. A series of 9 Working Papers will be published:

  • Working Paper 1: The Cost-Benefit Analysis Methodology
  • Working Paper 2: Pinning Down Vulnerability : From Narratives to Numbers
  • Working Paper 3: Potential Climate Change Impacts in the Rohini Basin, India
  • Working Paper 4: Evaluating Costs and Benefits of Flood Reduction Under Changing Climatic Conditions : Case of the Rohini River Basin, India
  • Working Paper 5: Uttar Pradesh Drought Cost-Benefit Analysis, India
  • Working Paper 6: Costs and Benefits of Flood Mitigation in the Lower Bagmati Basin: Case of Nepal Tarai and North Bihar, India
  • Working Paper 7: Pakistan Case Study : Evaluating the Costs and Benefits of Disaster Risk Reduction under Changing Climatic Conditions
  • Working Paper 8: Moving from Concepts to Practice : A Process and Methodology Summary for Identifying Effective Avenues for Risk Management Under Changing Climatic Conditions
  • Working Paper 9: Understanding the Costs and Benefits of Disaster Risk Reduction under Changing Climatic Conditions
