Action plan for implementing ADB’s disaster and emergency assistance policy


This paper presents an action plan to support the effective implementation of the 2004 Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy (DEAP) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The paper focuses on developing approaches that will embed disaster risk management (DRM) within ADB’s operational practices. It encourages developing member countries to mainstream disaster risk reduction by incorporating it into their planning and development processes, and to incorporate lessons learned from recent major disasters and develop mechanisms that address the immediate post-impact needs of developing member countries.

The action plan is set out in three parts, reflecting minimum actions required to implement the mandatory aspects of the DEAP, actions required to address lessons learned since the policy was approved, and additional considerations that could deepen ADB’s incorporation of disaster risk reduction into operations.
