Dear Mr. Viktor Prodedovich,
Thank you for your comment to the blog! You are absolutely correct that an inventory of threats and risks - or what is often called a risk assessment - is a crucial step to plan and prioritize disaster risk reduction and preventive measures. And yes, the World Bank is supporting governments and relevant stakeholders on this topic.
I'm grateful to see you so interested in disaster risk management in Central Asia and looking forward to hearing more of your ideas.
