  • US$24.00 (paperback)

Geolocating and undertaking a multi-hazard assessment of more than 30,000 infrastructure assets, the study identifies significant risks across the region with three-quarters of the assets exposed to four or more hazards. It notes that multi-hazard assessment and an understanding of the potential impacts of these hazards need to be systematically integrated into the planning, design, and financing of infrastructure upgrades and maintenance.
