Combating the dual challenges of climate-related disasters and COVID-19
Disasters affected more than 68 million people in Asia-Pacific last year. The majority of these were caused by weather-related hazards, fueled by climate change. Now as many parts of the region either prepare for - or already in - cyclone season it raises the specter that countries may be confronted with a major climate-related disaster at a time when they are firmly focused on COVID-19 response and recovery.

This webinar shares lessons from the recent devastating cyclone Harold in the Pacific and examines prevention and preparedness measures being taken in other high-risk countries in Asia-Pacific. The webinar will result in emerging lessons and key recommendations on how to address climate-related and other disaster risks in the face of COVID-19.
