Asian Disasters Worsened by Climate, Migration
Exacerbated by climate change, urban migration, and lack of preparedness, natural disasters in Asia are growing in severity, frequency and damage. During the first 11 years of the 21st century nearly 8 out of ten people affected by natural disasters worldwide lived in India or China.
Give2Asia's senior program officer and disaster response lead, Gillian Yeoh recently wrote on the impact of natural disasters on vulnerable populations in Asia in Investing in Asia, a periodical distributed within USA Today. In the article, she explores the statistics and stories of disasters in Asia, both from her work in disaster response and growing up on the coast of peninsular Malaysia.
