"Following on from quantity four during this sequence, which checked out concerns and demanding situations in regards to weather swap variation (CCA) and catastrophe chance aid (DRR), quantity five has a particular specialise in Asia. Arguably one of the areas of the area such a lot at risk of weather switch, Asia has varied mechanisms for CCA and DRR actions. Synergies among DRR and CCA during this zone are beneficial not just to avoid duplicities and derive optimum advantages from scarce assets but in addition so as to add worth to tasks via classes learnt from various views. This quantity offers 19 case reviews from thirteen nations and areas in Asia. The case reports spotlight diverse points of CCA-DRR access issues, reminiscent of coverage interventions, drought possibility administration, coastal administration, agro-forestry, lagoon administration, livelihood concerns and threat conversation. A important relief to scholars and researchers within the box of catastrophe danger relief, weather switch, environmental experiences and similar dangers, it presents a better understanding at the present development of analysis within the box additionally for practitioners and coverage makers utilizing the collective wisdom into coverage and selection making"--Provided by means of publisher.

CHAPTER 3 OVERVIEW OF DROUGHT RISK REDUCTION APPROACHES IN BANGLADESH Umma Habiba, Yukiko Takeuchi and Rajib Shaw INTRODUCTION Many people as well as the government in Bangladesh perceive ﬂoods and cyclones as recurrent environmental hazards in the country. They also view that these two hazards are the main contributors to crop loss in the country. 5 years (Adnan, 1993, p. 1; Erickson, 1993, p. 5; Hossain 1990, p.
Mainstreaming of CCA and DRR through policy formulation can facilitate economic planning and project implementation. The issue of climate change is expected to become an agenda in the mainstream through the implementation of the National Policy on Climate Change. Disaster reduction can be linked and incorporated to CCA goals and indicators when implementing the National Policy, giving both issues more prominence at national, state, and local levels. Chapter 9 by Subedi shows the dynamic mechanism of strategic entry points, building blocks, driving forces, and achievements (short-term, longterm, and goals) of CCA–DRR in Nepal.
Are indirectly tied to their resilience against climate hazards. Chapter 6 by Takeuchi and Shaw provides the adaptation option in Japan. Typhoon and ﬂooding incidents have become an increasing trend in Japan. The coastal and mountain disaster trends are increasing, and the vulnerable communities are the aged population living alone in the coast and the mountain villages. Citing the example from the Hiroshima area, the chapter shows the importance of gender perspective in reducing the damages due to increasing disasters.
