The Asia-Pacific disaster riskscape is being reshaped by climate change. Alarmingly the region has substantially regressed on the goal of climate action. This is a major concern as global warming is not only a hazard in itself, it also exacerbates interactions between biological and other natural hazards and other risk drivers such as poverty. Global heating and increasing variability of extreme temperatures can affect the frequency and intensity of disasters and make certain places and population groups more vulnerable.
