Technical Note IDB-TN-720
The Index of Governance and Public Policy for Disaster Risk Management (iGOPP) has been designed to evaluate the formal, and therefore provable, existence of a series of legal, institutional and budgetary conditions that are fundamental so that Disaster Risk Management processes can be implemented in a specific country. This technical note summarizes the methodology used to construct the iGOPP, including the conceptual framework that supports the development process and index. Furthermore, it includes a summary of the results of the applications for each of the countries and a regional summary.
