The benefits of investing in disaster risk management substantially exceed the costs.
This is the core finding that emerges from a series of detailed probabilistic analyses
of avenues for flood and, to a lesser extent, drought risk reduction in India, Nepal
and Pakistan. In most cases investigated, benefit/cost ratios are positive and in
some instances may be well above those achieved through other common
development investments. This finding holds true for an array of interventions that
range across a spectrum from insurance to early warning and from distributed
responses at the village level to large-scale infrastructure.
