Regional: Understanding Disaster Displacement in Asia and the Pacific

Sovereign (Public) Project | 53124-001 Status: Proposed

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) aims to support developing member countries (DMCs) prepare and respond to disasters through an enhanced understanding of disaster displacement. To realize this objective, the TA will (i) generate knowledge on disaster displacement, focusing on the characteristics, trends, and cost; and (ii) support selected DMCs to make evidence-based decisions on preparing for, responding to, and managing displacement risks. A greater understanding of the dynamics of disaster displacement can lead to reduced socioeconomic impacts and limit the longer-term consequences disasters can have on development, particularly for the most vulnerable.
