Regional assessment report on disaster risk reduction 2023: Europe and Central Asia

This Regional Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction 2023: Europe and Central Asia proposes that three broad, interconnected risk drivers characterize the complexity of managing risk in the region: climate change and environmental degradation; interconnected and complex economies, societies and infrastructure; and changing demographics. These themes are not isolated. Instead, they are treated throughout the chapters of this report as being recurring and tightly interwoven, with increasing, compounding and cascading effects on one another and beyond.
