How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The measurement of global progress in implementing a Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) targets should be able to report on a set of 38 indicators including those related to disaster damage. The ability of a hazard-specific database (e.g. landslide database in this case) in providing information that meets the SFDRR target is not...
Disaster loss indicators compatible with DesInventar Sendai were delineated to facilitate reporting to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), and enable monetary valuation of disaster impacts in Malaysia. A standard means of collecting disaggregated information to ensure compliance to SFDRR targets is a challenge for many governm...
The cumulative costs associated with frequent small-scale flash floods have been calculated for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to get an insight on damages and losses. There is limited information on the impact of frequently occurring small-scale events compared to large-scale or catastrophic disasters, particularly with respect to its overall implication...
Small-scale flash flood events are climate-related disasters which can put multiple aspects of the system at risk. The consequences of flash floods in densely populated cities are increasingly becoming problematic around the globe. However, they are largely ignored in disaster impact assessment studies, especially in assessing socioeconomic loss an...
Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is exposed to several natural hazards, among which flash floods are most common and frequent. Expanding development and higher intensity of rainfall are the primary causes of flash floods. As the urbanisation is growing, the number of exposed properties, people and business premises are also increasing. This m...
Flash floods are the most common and disruptive hydro-meteorological phenomena that Malaysian cities experience most often. The capital city of the country, especially, is experiencing more incidences of flash floods than the past. Although flash flood does not always confine to monsoon seasons, the city experiences flash flood more frequently in t...
The evaluation of loss and damage (L &D) is becoming increasingly important. There are many challenges in L & D assessement and these include attribution of disasters to climate change as well as methodological limitations.
