    Abstract

    This report describes the current disaster landscape in Pakistan and re-examines the components of risk, their purpose and their measurement in risk assessment processes. The central findings of this report show that considerable efforts have been made to develop hazard monitoring networks and to consolidate hazard, exposure and vulnerability information from different data sources and technical agencies. However, it seems that such efforts appear fragmented and uncoordinated at the national level.
