Rising to the challenge posed by the increasing frequency and growing risk of natural disasters, in the MENA region as elsewhere, will require country-level investment in managing disaster risk, including through the improvement and implementation of legal frameworks, as well as civil society and community resilience engagement. It will also require the establishment and strengthening of transnational “knowledge networks” that conduct collaborative research, help transfer skills, and share lessons learned and best practices. Through the series that flows from this essay, the Middle East-Asia Project (MAP) joins the conversation regarding how to meet the challenge of a fast-rising tide of natural disaster risk.
The MAP essay series explores the human costs and policy responses to conflict-driven mass displacement.
