Multiple benefits of DRR investment

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction - Regional Office for Africa (UNDRR AF)

This policy brief highlights how investing in disaster risk reduction not only protects lives and assets, but can also yield additional benefits that can enhance the wellbeing and resilience of African countries. Under the program, “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries, and Communities” by the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States funded by the European Union, this project endeavored to bridge the knowledge gap and encourage active discussions of future disaster risk reduction investments. By evaluating selected examples of flood and drought risk management options based on both direct and indirect benefits, the project analyzed the costs and possible economic gains of this type of investment in Angola, the United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia.
