Disaster risk reduction in tourism

United Nations Environment Programme

The ‘Disaster Risk Reduction in Tourism’ project aims at increasing the disaster management capacity of the main stakeholders in three tsunami hit tourism destinations (i.e. Kanniyakumari in Tamil Nadu State, India

Patong, Phuket and Pi-Pi Island, Krabi, Thailand). This will be achieved by improving the local authorities’ and the private sector’s ability to manage natural and man-made disasters and by educating the residents and tourists on how to properly prepare and react to disasters.
