Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities

The Scorecard provides a set of assessments that will allow local governments to monitor and review progress and challenges in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction: 2015-2030, and assess their disaster resilience. It is structured around UNISDR’s Ten Essentials...

Disaster Risk Governance: Unlocking progress and reducing risk

Scales of governance is fundamental concept in the study of DRG as risk is configured locally but collective responses will vary according to spatial and administrative scales at which stakeholders act, in accordance with their mandates. This paper attempts to fill the gap by examining the DRG...

Disaster Risk Reduction, Governance and Development

There are some encouraging examples of good governance with regards to disaster risk reduction. For instance, the development, in several countries in Africa, of multi-stakeholder national platforms or national committees provide strong evidence of political will towards sharing decision-making...

Disaster Risk Reduction, Governance and Mainstreaming

Governance is the umbrella under which disaster risk reduction takes place. The existence of public awareness, political will and sufficient capacity are key to making disaster risk reduction (DRR) an underlying principle in all relevant development sectors. With its significant experience in...

Ecosystems protecting infrastructure and communities: lessons learned and guidelines for...

The publication provides a detailed description of the project’s operational approach and draws lessons from the case studies to inform and guide best practices to implement integrated ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA). It is intended for practitioners...
