Natural disasters in Middle East and North Africa: A regional overview
This report aims to establish a more strategic and collaborative framework between the World Bank and its international partners, particularly the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), to assist MNA countries’ efforts to shift from disaster response to proactive risk management. Approaches used to develop the framework may include implementation of probabilistic modeling; risk assessment (using completed studies in Djibouti, Morocco, Lebanon, and the Republic of Yemen) to sensitize authorities and guide vulnerability reduction strategies; financial disaster risk transfer instruments; and leveraging best practices from around the world and within the region (some of these are presented in this report).rovided
