A Tearfund research project in collaboration with UN/ISDR
This report highlights key issues raised by the 11 participating organisations of the Tearfund conducted research on disaster risk reduction (DRR), as well as examples of positive donor initiatives. In collaboration with UN/ISDR, Tearfund asked donors to assess for themselves what stage they have reached with mainstreaming DRR. In their reviews, donor organisations highlighted many challenges in mainstreaming DRR, and proposed a number of methods for overcoming them.
In total, 11 organisations submitted reviews: Canadian government (CIDA), Danish government (Danida), European Commission (ECHO, DG DEV, DG RELEX), French government (Ministère des Affaires Etrangères, (MFA)), Inter-American Development Bank, Norwegian government (MFA), Swedish government (Sida), Swiss government (SDC), UK government (DFID), UNDP (BCPR) and the World Bank (HRM).
