Mainstreaming Water Resilience in Asia and the Pacific – ADB’s ARe yoU Water Resilient Initiative
Water is the primary medium through which we feel the effects of climate change. Asia and the Pacific is the most disaster affected region in the world and is home to more than 40% of the globe’s calamities and 84% of the people they affect.
To tackle these issues, ADB Water Sector Group (WSG) has set up the RUWR: aRe yoU Water Resilient?” initiative. As part of this initiative, ADB WSG has launched the “Asia and the Pacific Water Resilience Hub”, a unique platform on its kind for the Asia and Pacific region. It brings together water experts, policy makers, resource managers, and water implementers to collectively address water resilience in the region to enable countries and water entities better weather and prepare for natural hazards, climate change, water insecurity, and social and economic crises.
