National policies and plans

This page displays national policy documents, strategies and plans on disaster risk, climate adaptation and resilience.

Governance of risk plays a central role in managing disaster risk. Disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategies, in particular, are crucial for coordinating DRR implementation at both the national and local levels. They serve as the cornerstone for effective disaster risk governance and risk-informed development.

National policies and plans for disaster risk reduction are comprehensive strategies designed by governments to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. They typically include establishing a national disaster management agency, creating legal and institutional frameworks, and integrating disaster risk reduction into broader development planning.
