Financing disaster risk reduction: towards a coherent and comprehensive approach

Source(s):  Overseas Development Institute (ODI)

This report examines five countries - Indonesia, the Philippines, Costa Rica, Mexico and South Africa - that all have positive aspects regarding coordinated and coherent national financing of disaster risk reduction (DRR), yet issues remain regardless of progress made. The report makes recommendations based on the research targeted towards different actors - national governments, the international community, the academic and research community and the successor the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA).

If there is one general principle that underpins the recommendations it is is that making and respecting financial commitments to risk reduction is essential to make progress. No quantity of good legislation or strong DRR frameworks, even those that make risk reduction an issue sector by sector, will make a difference if insufficient financing is allocated.

This paper was funded by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) as a contribution to the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction prepared by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).
