Background

Water-related natural disasters, namely droughts and flood, landslides, high tide flood and mount erruption flood are the primary killers, and heavily affect millions of people. These disasters are serious impediments to sustainable development and poverty reduction. Huge economic losses can also be ascribed to water-related disasters, including massive impacts to infrastructure, shelter, health and food production. The influences of climate variability/change and global warming with the likely increased frequency of drought floods and other water related disaster will increase the vulnerability of populations. Demographic changes, urbanization, migration and lack of adequate infrastructure are also putting higher numbers of people at risk than ever before. Therefore, assessment of the risks and possible negative consequences of water-related disasters encountered by global changes should be comprehensively studied and understood in order to have better solutions.
