[Extract] Recent flooding in Asia has drawn worldwide attention (DFO, 2012). Floods in Pakistan in late July 2010 inundated one-fifth of the country, killed nearly 2000 people, and disrupted the livelihoods of about 20 million others. Heavy rains causing flooding throughout the 2010 monsoon period killed several thousand in China, many from rain-associated landslides. By the end of August, more than 15 million people had been evacuated from flood and landslide danger zones. Again in 2011, widespread floods caused catastrophic damage in nearly all Southeast Asian countries, including Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, and the Philippines (DFO, 2012).
