This report urges governments to address widespread disincentives that persist for governmental and also non-governmental risk management actors, leading to an over-reliance on the government for post-disaster risk financing. It emphasizes that a shift in risk governance is required as governance obstacles hamper the effectiveness of current risk reduction investments.
The report proposes a framework that helps identify bottlenecks to resilience engagements in existing risk governance frameworks. It is based on the definition of basic resilience targets and their achievements at the status quo. The mapping of the institutional landscape, including all responsible actors, their current engagement and their respective motivation, incentives, as well as power relationships seeks to reveal the driving forces underlying the existing gaps. The identified shortcomings provide information to adjust the institutional and governance arrangements to unleash the engagement of all actors towards higher levels of resilience.
