Abstract/Description

This working paper identifies the types of technological innovations at every stage of disaster risk management, particularly on information and early warnings, prevention, mitigation, response and recovery, which can support stakeholders in pursuing resilience agriculture in relation to food security, community welfare and achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs). Disaster risk reduction (DRR) agriculture intervention plays a significant role in improving agricultural resilience to natural disasters and climate change. It has been well documented that investments in preparedness can result in significant savings in aid and rehabilitation costs. Studies concluded that for every dollar spent on DRR is about equal to 4 dollars returned in avoided damage or losses and costs.
