Handbook on disaster law reform – A guide for domestic authorities

This Handbook on Disaster Law Reform provides guidance on how to run an effective and inclusive legal review process, which harnesses the knowledge and experience of a broad range of actors and stakeholders to develop strong legal arrangements for disasters. The Handbook has been designed for government decision-makers and parliamentarians who are planning or engaging in a review of existing disaster laws and regulations.

Recommendations that emerge from the publication include:

• Introducing a central risk information management system;

• Strengthening subnational and community risk governance through establishing sub-national risk management committees down to community level;

• Strengthening regulation of international aid to minimize unsolicited goods and disaster waste;

• Strengthening the role of disaster service liaison officers, especially the front-line agencies
