Riesgos Naturales

La deforestación de las montañas puede llevar a inundaciones devastadoras.

Con la probabilidad de un incremento en la frecuencia e intensidad de desastres relacionados con el clima como inundaciones, sequias y tormentas tropicales, el coste tanto de la gestión del riesgo como la reconstrucción y la mejora posterior se incrementaran también.

Fomentar la adaptación basada en los ecosistemas en las montañas es fundamental para la protección contra inundaciones.Los desastres naturales se incrementarán, complicando el desafío de alcanzar el desarrollo sostenible. Estimaciones recientes indican que aproximadamente serán necesarios 40 mil millones de dólares anuales hasta 2050 para neutralizar los impactos del cambio climático, aunque menos del 10 por ciento de esta suma está disponible hasta la fecha.
