Policies and Plans

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 and local strategies set implementation milestones, establish key roles and responsibilities, and identify technical and financial resources. At the same time, the existence of regional/sub-regional strategies and/or legally binding frameworks for disaster risk reduction acts as a significant incentive for the development of DRR strategies at national level.

This page displays regional, national and local policy documents and declarations on disaster risk, climate adaptation and resilience:
