Analysis of legislation related to disaster risk reduction in Brazil

Brazil has in the recent past increased the number of initiatives on disaster risk reduction (DRR). This has been triggered especially by the recent episodes of serious disasters hitting the country, notably floods and landslides, for example, in 2008 in Santa Catarina and in 2011 in Rio de Janeiro. Such events resulted in thousands of dead and hundreds of thousands being made homeless, and gave rise to much debate on how the country can best cope with future disasters.
