It is intended to serve as a reference that explains the relevance, methodology, process, findings and recommendations of the LIA investigations conducted for the Bangladesh Urban Earthquake Resilience Project (BUERP). The guidebook also provides real-life examples based on project experiences in Dhaka and other cities like Mumbai in India, Amman in Jordan, Quezon and Pasig in the Philippines of how to document, analyze and make use of the inter-related legal and institutional functions for reducing disaster risks in megacities and large urban areas. The framework it describes can be used for LIA investigations in other cities in Bangladesh.
