Making disaster risk reduction a policy priority, institutional strengthening (HFA 1)
OPM has extensive experience in political economy analysis. The combination of understanding of the pressures on policy-makers and planners in developing countries, together with our technical expertise, makes us an ideal partner for governments and donors seeking to introduce disaster risk management approaches. As well as helping provide the comprehensive analysis of risk – using modelling and simulation techniques as well as bringing insights from around the globe, such as our recent study of governance and disaster risk reduction – we can also help design and implement pragmatic incentive programmes to support risk mitigation.
