Disaster risks in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region are exacerbated by aging, inadequately maintained public infrastructure, lack of awareness of potential risks, and climate change. Where programs are more mature, a range of advanced and innovative measures are now in place. These include the generation of analytics and geographic information system (GIS) layers so that governments and local communities can better understand the risks facing them, mainstreaming of disaster risk management (DRM) into government policies, and the promotion of investments in critical infrastructure resilience to enhance urban and sector resilience.
