Building resilience to natural disasters: A performance review

In 2011, the Department for International Development (DFID) decided that disaster resilience should be a central objective of both its development and its humanitarian programming. Between 2011 and 2015, it conducted a process of mainstreaming resilience objectives into all relevant programmes. This meant ensuring that investment decisions were informed by disaster risks and that programmes were designed or adapted to be resilient to natural hazards. This review assesses the effectiveness of DFID’s approach to building resilience. It analyses how well it conducted its resilience mainstreaming process and review how its programmes are contributing to building resilience. It focuses on six country case studies: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nepal, the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Uganda. It also looks at DFID’s influencing activities and partnerships, and assess whether results monitoring and learning are helping to improve its work.
