Disaster risk reduction in Pakistan: the contribution of DEC member agencies, 2010-2012

Source(s):  Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC)

This study reveals that while the Pakistani government has instituted a comprehensive disaster risk reduction (DRR) governance system, the system actually suffers from a lack of political commitment, funding, skilled human resources, and coordination and suffers from fragmentation, and overlapping and unclear mandates among government agencies horizontally and vertically. Issues addressed: (i) DRR governance; (ii) multi-hazard disaster risk analysis and early warning systems; (iii) DRR: prevention and mitigation; (iv) DRR: avoidance and response; (v) policy, advocating, and networking; (vi) community perspectives on DRR; (vii) evidence of resilience enhancement; and (viii) incorporation of lessons from the DEC post Tsunami DRR study.
