After decades of neglect, the importance of protecting and improving ecosystems for reducing disaster risk started receiving attention in the recent years.

Human activity poses significant impact on the biodiversity of world ecosystems, reducing both their resilience and capacity. Humanity is, therefore, all set to experience the impact of ecosystem devastations in the form of increasing climate vulnerability and risk of hydro-meteorological disasters.
