Welcome to Geohazard Risk Management in Transport Sector
Community of Practice!
This community intends to make geohazard risk management a centerpiece of transport and infrastructure planning by providing a platform for all stakeholders to share their experiences and learn practical skills that are directly applicable to development projects. Our community of practice is part of Building Resilience to Landslide and Geohazard Risk in the South Asia Region Program.
The World Bank’s Disaster Risk and Climate Change Unit of the South Asia Region organized a regional workshop to build the capacity of policymakers and operational or technical government counterparts in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka to integrate geohazard risk management into their infrastructure programs—thus helping to ensure the safety of people and property as well as the sustainability of such investments.
