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.

transitional shelter and;  legal preparedness for international disaster response.
