Guidelines for mainstreaming disaster risk assessment in development
The present Guidelines aim to help make disaster risk reduction and assessment a routine part of development planning and resource allocation. This means instilling the culture of applying disaster risk assessment as an analytical and decision-making framework at all levels of society. This way, the practice of disaster risk assessment would become another regularly used decision-making tool, such as environmental impact assessment, cost-benefit analysis and social impact assessment. The present Guidelines are based on current research, information and experience, and also on relevant prescriptions for undertaking risk assessment and integrating disaster risk analysis in development contained in current literature.
