This guide will help improve the understanding of technological hazard management as it relates to disaster risk reduction. The guide will discuss technological hazard management at different scales, discuss opportunities for DRR interventions focusing on links between technological and natural hazards and share case studies from existing policies and practices. It aims to provide guidance to central government disaster risk reduction focal points to assist in the application of these case studies in development at all levels and in all sectors.
This consultative version of the guideline is the product of literature reviews, discussions and contributions from diverse stakeholders, as well as UNISDR-nominated experts. If you have comments and inputs (including further case studies for consideration), please contact Dr. Chadia Wannous (firstname.lastname@example.org )
