Summary of activities and accomplishments, final report:

This document reports on the project that makes headways in the goal to mainstream disaster risk reduction in city planning and operations by linking disaster risk reduction to development and governance.

It is structured along three components aimed at developing tools and methods for the management of urban risk, for testing and validating these tools with city planners and managers, for demonstrating the value of disaster risk reduction in pilot cities, and for developing an impetus for urban disaster risk reduction on a global and regional basis.

It details the processes that led to the endorsement of the Global Forum for Urban and Megacities Risk Reduction and the implementation of sound practices.
