UNDRR has partnered with the European Union, African Union and African Caribbean and Pacific Group of States to deliver a programme to build African countries’ capacity in risk-sensitive investment planning and DRR mainstreaming under the programme “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries and Communities”. This report is part of this effort. It provides an analysis of public investment planning for disaster risk reduction (DRR) in Namibia and highlights the level of DRR mainstreaming in the country’s national budget. This is done through a risk-sensitive budget review analysis that uses the Organisation for Co-operation and Development (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) DRR policy marker to evaluate and assess the extent to which the government has budgeted for and/or invested
in DRR and DRR mainstreaming.
