Integrating Disaster Risk Management in China urban operations: Completion report

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

The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) supported: (i) mainstreaming disaster risk management principles across sixteen investment projects in the urban and DRM team’s China portfolio; and (b) creation of three major knowledge products. A summary of Disaster Risk Management (DRM)-specific activities supported by GFDRR across each of the sixteen projects is provided in this report.

All 16 projects have adopted three or more disaster risk reduction and recovery principles under the GFDRR framework and promote resilient infrastructure and governance for risk-based planning and management. The projects develop new and rehabilitate resilient infrastructure designed to withstand the impact of high-intensity climatic events like excess rainfall, floods, typhoons, landslides and earthquakes, common in the project areas, which lie within rapidly urbanizing municipalities, smaller towns and larger counties across inland and coastal provinces. In addition to structural measures, the projects also focus on non-structural measures such as support for multi-hazard early warning systems, hydromet services, disaster risk information and assessments, which include emergency preparedness plans and safety procedures among areas of extreme urban poverty.
