This report addresses the series of shocks, both natural and financial crisis, that battered the Asia-Pacific region in recent years. It highlights the unrealistic traditional way of considering these events individually, and responds to the need for governments to deal with overlapping shocks that demand a more comprehensive and systemic approach to building resilience. It provides a comprehensive response to addressing multiple shocks in Asia and the Pacific. It shows how people, organizations, institutions and policymakers can work together to weave resilience into economic, social and environmental policies.
