This report contains case studies spanning 40 countries that showcase emerging best practices, demonstrate how risk assessments are being used to inform disaster risk management and broader development, and highlight lessons learned through these efforts. Taken as a group, these case studies evidence the need for continued investment in accurate and useful risk information and provide recommendations for the future. It was developed to inform post-HFA discussions and the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR), and reports on the current state of the practice of risk assessment and on advances made over the last decade.
