About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic our objective is to show the state-of-the-art on disaster risk reduction initiatives in the countries and in the regions considered, together with an assessment of hazards that affect those countries. Discussions such as monitoring and early warning of natural disasters of hydrometeorological origin, vulnerability mapping, trends in climate extremes and other issues considered in the Sendai Framework and the ODS relevant disaster impact assessments are some of the subjects to be covered in this collection.
While the focus is regional, we expect contributions from research and operational groups from the region and from outside.
