Nature Based Systems in Mitigating Hydro-meteorological Hazards and Disasters

Hydro-meteorological hazards are increasingly becoming prominent owing to their adverse impact on ecosystems and community livelihood. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-203 underscores the need for science and new knowledge on natural hazards as a springboard for cultivating solutions to better protect communities.

With climate change and climate variability very evident and manifesting through increasing frequency and magnitude of extreme events, such as floods, drought, landslides and altered seasons, among others, there are increasing arguments that optimizing nature-based solutions offers the best protection. This subtheme envisage a wide spectrum of presentations, spanning natural hazards, disaster risk management and potential solutions, especially those centred on nature best solutions.
