Disaster risk management programme reduces 8% deaths in Vietnam

Around one third of Viet Nam’s most vulnerable communes have developed disaster risk reduction plans reducing 8% annual death rate,  UN Development Programme said.

In a meeting organised to review the progress of the national community-based disaster risk management (CBDRM) programme in Vietnam, Mr Bakhodir Burkhanov, UNDP Deputy Country Director, mentioned that almost 2000 of the most vulnerable communes in Vietnam have developed risk reduction and response plans.

Viet Nam, at high risk to the impacts of global climate change, leads to weather related disasters causing on average over 400 deaths and economic losses equivalent to more than one per cent of national GDP.

Disaster risk reduction and management is given central importance to Vietnam as a national CBDRM programme has aimed to reach 6000 of communes by 2020 in eleven years.

This Community-based disaster risk management  programme has reduced the loss of life at the rate of nearly 8% per year on average.

The 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR15), prepared by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) estimated that an investment of US$6 billion annually in disaster risk management would result in avoided losses of US$360 billion over the next 15 years.

The report Disaster Risk Reduction highlights that in many countries, climate change is magnifying risks and increasing the cost of disasters.

Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Several studies have found Asian cities to be most at the risk of natural disasters.
