Community-based disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and emergency response for older people


The summary reports provides best practices and agreed action points for promoting disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA) and emergency response among vulnerable groups by working through community-based institutions of older people in ASEAN countries and Japan.

It advocates for greater emphasis on the heightened vulnerability and specific needs of older people in community-based DRR and CCA and recognises the importance of civil society organisations and older people to work together on DRR and emergency response programs.
