Natural disaster risk reduction

A research report into natural disaster risk reduction (DRR) and its priority within donors' development and relief plans

2003 Available in English

This research paper seeks to understand the underlying reasons why natural disaster risk reduction remains a relatively low priority within institutional donors’ relief and development plans. Some of these reasons include a lack of understanding and awareness of the potential of disaster risk reduction, as well as assumptions that development without DRR is sufficient. It is, however, a well-known fact that the number of people affected by natural disasters in low-income countries is growing annually.

The aim of this research was to determine if and how major donors intend to address this through risk reduction.
