Integrated Climate and Disaster Vulnerability Assessment and Risk Mapping

Asian Development Bank

Categorized Under: Climate, International Development



ICF International supported the Asian Development Bank (ADB) by mapping climate vulnerability and risk for 10 Asian countries to help them become more resilient to climate change and climate-related hazards such as floods and droughts. More specifically, ICF:

  • Determined which areas and critical sectors (e.g., transport, energy, water supply and sanitation, agriculture) in each country are most vulnerable to climate change and climate-related natural hazards
  • Developed subregional, national, subnational, and sectoral maps of these areas
  • Identified ADB projects at risk of adverse impacts
  • Developed investment plans for each country that include adaptation and disaster risk management strategies to reduce the vulnerability and exposure of people, infrastructure, and ecosystems at risk
  • Led the project's international and multidisciplinary team of experts, including ICF experts in disaster risk management, climate change impacts and adaptation, geographic information systems (GIS) modeling and mapping, and renewable energy

Countries supported include Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
