Populations at risk of disaster: a resettlement guide

Source(s):  Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the (GFDRR)
World Bank, the (WB)

This book is designed for governments that make decisions on the application of preventive resettlement programs as disaster risk reduction measures, as well as for institutions and professionals in charge of preparing and implementing these programs, civil society organizations participating in resettlement and risk reduction processes, and at-risk communities.

The basic premises of the guide are that resettlement as a preventive measure should be incorporated in comprehensive risk reduction strategies in order to be effective; and that resettlement’s objective is to protect the lives and assets of persons at risk and to improve or at least restore their living conditions.
