Rapid population growth and economic development have become apparent in ASEAN countries in recent years. Moreover, each year witnesses reported damage from major natural hazards, with a notable frequency of floods and storms. To mitigate the enormous damage caused by these natural hazards, the ASEAN countries are taking proactive measures through ‘investment in disaster risk reduction (DRR).’ These measures are varied and include early warning, disaster information sharing, and the utilisation of disaster prevention technologies. In addition, most of the practices reviewed in this study were found to be in line with the AADMER Work Programme 2021–2025 and the Sendai Framework, which are official documents in the field of disaster reduction. To further promote and effectively implement ‘investment in DRR’ activities in the future, collaboration between countries, including Japan, and related organisations will be important.
