Abstract: 

The 2010 Asia-Pacific Disaster Report (APDR) is the first biennial report of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction for Asia and the Pacific (UNISDR AP) office. The report is produced in response to the recommendations of the first session of the ESCAP Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction held in Bangkok, 25-27 March 2009, following a proposal made by the Executive Secretary of ESCAP. Development of the report is attributed to a multi-stakeholder effort of disaster risk reduction organizations and experts from the region. The report provides a comprehensive outlook on the socio-economic aspects of disaster risks and risk analysis in the region.
