The Asia-Pacific region faces multiple crises such as slowdown in
developed economies, reduced demand for regional exports, higher
costs of capital, and the volatility of commodity markets. This
book reviews the effects of natural disasters and major economic
crises in Asia and the Pacific, highlights the increasing trend of
natural disasters affecting the region through disruptions to
production and supply chains of goods and services as economies of
the region become more integrated, and examines the links between
the impact of natural disasters and economic shocks. It pays
particular attention to policy options that protect and empower the
poor and vulnerable, prevent them from falling deeper into poverty
and empower them to withstand all forms of crises. It reviews and
analyze how to enhance regional cooperation in Asia and the Pacific
in order to put in place an effective strategy to build resilience
to natural disasters and major economic crises to protect
hard-earned development gains made thus far, including progress
towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
