Analysis of legislation related to disaster risk reduction in the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is the second most vulnerable country in the Caribbean after Haiti, being exposed to tropical storms and hurricanes, floods, droughts, wildfires and landslides, as well as being at considerable risk from seismic events and tsunamis; high proportion of the population lives in poverty and inequality between the rich and the poor is also substantial. Escalating rates of urbanization and migration from Haiti have led to the development of often unregulated communities living in high-risk areas.
