Disaster risk assessment for project preparation: A practical guide

Source(s):  Asian Development Bank (ADB)

This practical guide provides technical advice on disaster risk assessment to facilitate the consideration of disaster risks in the design of development projects, seeking to ensure that disaster risks are properly identified and measures taken to reduce them where necessary. Disaster risk assessments can also help steer development investments to increase the disaster resilience of exposed and vulnerable communities more broadly.

The document begins by outlining the rationale for integrating disaster risk management (DRM) into ADB projects. ADB’s preliminary project disaster risk screening arrangements are then described, followed by an overview of DRA approaches and methodologies for projects warranting more in-depth analysis. The succeeding sections focus on the design of individual DRAs and the application of their results and recommendations, including sector examples of potential DRM actions. The final section covers the integration of DRAs and their recommendations into ADB’s project-related business processes and templates.
