Asia

Asia and the Pacific is the world’s most disaster-prone region. The region is vulnerable to earthquakes, typhoons, flooding, tsunamis, volcanoes, drought and food shortages. Moreover, more than one quarter of the world’s conflicts occur in Asia. The region hosts 3.3 million refugees.

Despite some Asian countries have shown enormous economic, the region remains home to two-thirds of the world’s poor. Especially marginalized groups have only limited access to safe water services and sanitation, to health care and education and only limited income possibilities. These vulnerable groups are the ones most affected by crises and are not able to break out of the vicious cycle of poverty.

Moreover, Asia is one of the world’s most vulnerable regions to climate change. It is already affecting the region and has the high potential to hinder seriously the Asia-Pacific’s sustainable development. Furthermore, the environmental degradation caused by economic development, urbanization, resource depletion, is a huge challenge, and created already significant environmental health hazards for the population.

In Asia Malteser International works currently in 10 countries (Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines and Indonesia). MI in Asia aims at alleviating suffering after/during humanitarian crisis and natural disasters, reducing vulnerabilities and strengthening resilience, empowering people, communities and local actors and contribute to sustainable development using integrated, cross-sectoral, inclusive, community-led and people-centered approaches.

We offer innovative solutions and give advice in WASH, Health, Food Nutrition Security/Livelihood (FNSL), Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation.
