  • Source(s): DARA - Spain
  • Publication date: 2013
  • Number of pages: 223 p.

This risk reduction index (RRI) aims to influence development processes and promote better integration of disaster risk reduction (DRR) into development and poverty reduction strategies and policies. It provides in-depth analysis of the existing conditions and capacities that either hinder or enable local and national actors to carry out effective risk management, in six West African countries - Cape Verde, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Niger and Senegal, across four risk drivers: environment and natural resources; socioeconomic conditions and livelihoods; land use and built environment; and governance. It identifies aspects of development processes and institutional structures that need to be addressed and engaged in risk management.
