Supporting disaster risk reduction in developing countries - A study for the European Union


This report provides an overview and analysis of current and planned activities in DRR within the development cooperation of EU Member States and Commission services, and points toward potential areas for increased EU support. The report also draws information and insights from the activities of international and regional organizations engaged in DRR. Geographically, the scope of the study encompassed activities in all developing countries, but attention was focussed especially on the regions with highest physical and social vulnerability to disasters.

The study was commissioned to assist implementation of the EU Strategy for Supporting Disaster Risk Reduction in Developing Countries. However, the contents of this publication are the sole responsibility of its authors and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union.
