Transforming Disaster Risk
Frank Thomalla let us know that the Asia Center in Bangkok just joined the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk network. He leads an initiative on Transforming Development and Disaster Risk, now in its second phase. This network and initiative are key to bringing disasters and adaptation together. Both need to move along the continuum from 'good resource management' to transformations that are prepared for the coming climeractic.
Frank is also an observer in our project on Private Markets for Climate Resilience and we hope to link our efforts at some stage.
