It does so by categorizing budget expenditures…
In 2018–2019, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) carried out risksensitive budget reviews (RSBRs) for 16 African countries. This report synthesises trends in DRR investments across the 16 countries and identifies general policy recommendations. Its aim is to improve understanding of public budgeting for DRR as well as the need…
The analysis covers three to five financial years for each country, except for Cameroon where only 2019 data is included.

Under the program, “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries, and Communities” by the African…
 This study aims at quantifying the multiple benefits of disaster risk reduction (DRR) investments and building a knowledge base for risk-informed decision-making on DRR investment in Angola. The present report describes the methods of direct and indirect benefit assessment and their application to flood and drought risk management and is released as pa…
In 2018, as part of the “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries and Communities” programme, UNDRR, with the help of CIMA Research Foundation, VU Amsterdam, and Wageningen University and Research developed country risk profiles based on a probabilistic risk assessment methodology for floods and droughts…
