Tackling tropical cyclones in the Indian Ocean
Tropical cyclones give developing countries much needed rain for agriculture. But as the earth warms, they are set to become more intense, and strong cyclones can cause great loss of life and property. This is especially true in South Asia, where the Bay of Bengal's shallow coastal waters, high tides and densely populated low-lying areas make cyclones particularly deadly. October 8th was International Day for Disaster Reduction, and to highlight the issues facing South Asia, SciDev.Net published a set of articles to inform policymakers, researchers and international donors about ways of improving cyclone management. The online resource focuses on the impact cyclones have in South Asia and how countries can better forecast, prepare for and adapt to future cyclones, as well as cope with the impacts of extreme events. It highlights lessons learnt from countries like Bangladesh, India and Madagascar.
