The Program will put in place a holistic risk management system which includes the establishment of community disaster management committees (DMCs), a balanced combination of structural and nonstructural measures (such as risk education, mapping and warning, and flood proofing), and sustainability mechanisms for relevant infrastructure. International advanced practices will be introduced, including innovative and cost-effective approaches for riverbank erosion management and progressive knowledge development to cope with flooding and riverbank erosion. Resilience against the possible impacts of climate change will be strengthened, which may increase the frequency and magnitude of water disasters in the region, thereby contributing to the efforts of climate change adaptation.
