Strengthening disaster laws
Experience has shown that effective domestic laws can be indispensable tools for reducing vulnerability to disasters and ensuring an effective response. Weak laws, on the other hand, can hinder progress in making populations safer and stall their recovery.
This IFRC brochure presents concerns on legislation for disaster risk reduction at the community level; regulatory barriers to emergency and
transitional shelter and;  legal preparedness for international disaster response.
