Nigeria national capacity assessment report on disaster risk reduction


This publication identifies gaps and challenges Nigeria is currently facing to fully engage in preventing, mitigating and reducing natural disaster risks. The assessment is also an opportunity to clearly identify existing capacities both at national and state levels, to understand desired capacities, and to propose recommendations on how they can be further developed and strengthened.

It focuses on national and state capacities for disaster risk reduction (DRR) using the indicators set for the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action. It looks into five technical areas of capacity development: (i) ownership, (ii) institutional arrangements, (iii) competencies, (iv) working tools and resources, and (v) relationships/coordination.
