10 enabling elements for a successful national disaster risk assessment


Presentation by Ruud Houdijk (ltineris Health and Safety)

This is an excerpt from the launch webinar of the National Disaster Risk Assessment Words into Action Guidelines. The guidelines focus on Sendai Framework’s first Priority for Action: Understanding Disaster Risk, which is the basis for all measures on disaster risk reduction and is closely linked to the other three Priorities for Action.

The ten elements that enable success of a risk assessment are organized under three stages of the risk assessment: (a) preparing and scoping, (b) conducting risk analysis and (c) using results for decisions in disaster risk management and sustainable development.

These elements have been developed based on common characteristics that were identified among many successful risk assessments conducted at various levels, as well as a few national central systems for understanding disaster risk, including in Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
