Disaster Loss Data and Linkage to Climate Change Impacts for the Arab Region
Lead Author: UNISDR


This Technical Report presents a comprehensive analysis of weather-related and geological disasters in Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the State of Palestine, Tunisia and Yemen, based on the methodology and tools developed by UNISDR. It provides a historical review of disaster trends over a 30-year period based on each country’s nationally-accounted disaster losses and focuses on frequency, mortality and economic losses indicators. The outcome serves as a sound basis for well-informed decisions towards disaster risk reduction interventions and highlights the importance of carrying out such flood risk analysis at the country level to prioritize actions in this regard.

The central aim of this Regional Knowledge Hub is to provide access to information that can facilitate cooperation, coordination, dialogue and exchange among Arab States, organizations and stakeholder and to support awareness raising as well as regional networking and exchange on issues related to climate change and water resources in the region. Access to RICCAR assessment findings and associated datasets is being made available on this Regional Knowledge Hub, which is comprised of two open-access components: a website and a data portal. This online platform complements, and builds upon, the findings and processes already presented in the main report and its technical annex, as well as the series of publications that elaborate further on the work being pursued collectively under RICCAR.
