Capacity Development Strategy for Disaster Risk Management in Myanmar

February 2017

Myanmar is one of the most disaster prone countries of the world. The country regularly experiences natural hazards of cyclones, storm surges, floods, landslides, earthquakes, droughts and forest fires. Manmade hazards of transport related accidents, industrial and mining mishaps and urban and rural fires are recurring phenomenon in different parts of the country. Vulnerable housing and living conditions, aging infrastructure and degrading ecology and environment are constantly exposed to the risks of these multiple hazards, resulting in considerable damage and losses of lives, livelihoods and economy. Risks of disasters have been compounded by the worsening impacts of climate change and increasing density of population in urban and rural settlements.
