10 things to know: Disaster & climate risk governance in UNDP

Source(s):  United Nations Development Programme - Headquarters (UNDP)

This booklet provides an overview of UNDP’s work in disaster and climate risk governance, an area that gained greater recognition from the international community through the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (Sendai Framework) which dedicates one of its four Priorities for Action to “strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disasters”. 

UNDP strengthens its disaster & climate risk governance capacities through a comprehensive set of complementary policy and programme support services, covering the following categories:

  • Assessment and analysis
  • Institutions (capacity development, training, coordination, decentralization)
  • Legal and regulatory frameworks
  • Plans (action plans, national, sub-nation and sector plans, and planning frameworks)
  • Policies (national and sector policies and strategies, and strategic frameworks)
  • Risk-informed development planning and budgeting (or mainstreaming)
  • Disaster recovery governance
  • Community based and urban risk management
  • Gender equality
