The objective of the Economic Vulnerability and Disaster Risk Assessment study was to assist the Governments of Malawi and Mozambique in determining the extent of their economic vulnerability to climate variability and in assessing the systematic economic risks associated with droughts and floods. The study results create a compelling argument for incorporating disaster risk reduction (DRR) into national economic planning and development strategies.
The study also quantified the depth and extent of hazard, vulnerability, and disaster loss associated with floods and droughts through detailed spatial risk profiling for both countries. The study results include the Atlases of Drought and Flood Risks for Malawi and Mozambique to inform various stakeholders and decision makers involved with disaster preparedness and response about the the parameters and distribution of drought and flood risks.
