Integrating disaster risk reduction into the CCA and UNDAF: a guide for UN country teams

Source(s):  United Nations Development Group (UNDG)

The guidance lays out a step-by-step approach to assist UN country teams in integrating disaster risk reduction (DRR) in the preparation, formulation and monitoring and evaluation of country analyses (CCA) and the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF).

Disaster impacts have persistent, long-term negative effects on poverty and human development that undermine the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). While development has the potential to significantly reduce disaster risk, inappropriate development choices can also exacerbate vulnerabilities and aggravate the negative effects of disasters. Disaster risk reduction aims at addressing the underlying risk factors in order to reduce avoidable loss of life, property and livelihoods. Reducing vulnerabilities, mitigating disaster impacts and improving UN Country Teams' (UNCTs) responses to future disasters correlate strongly with fostering the MDGs and safeguarding development gains.
