The ASEAN Dynamic Risk Assessment Guidelines and Experiences

ADAGE is a contribution to the implementation of the ASEAN Regional Risks and Vulnerability Assessment Guidelines (2017).

Disaster risks – created by hazardous physical events interacting with vulnerable social conditions - can change significantly across time and space because of the dynamic nature of their drivers and their interactions. However, many disaster risk assessments at present are capturing only static variables (GFDRR 2016). This limitation reduces the relevance of disaster risk assessments to operational decision-making.

Variables contributing to risk at a location can be broadly categorized as static (or quasi-static) (such as topography, land use, soil population, socio-economics) and dynamic (weather, crop-status or water resources related). Through a collaborative approach amongst practitioners, ADAGE aims to bring these sources of information to operational risk assessments and decision making.
