Strengthening Disaster Risk Governance by UNDP

This report presents detailed findings from a selection of 17 countries in Africa, Arab States, Asia and the Pacific (Asia/Pacific), Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (ECI S), and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC ), where UNDP worked on DRG. Based on the findings of this report, specific recommendations are made for UNDP in four areas:
  • Conceptual clarity and refinement of approach;
  • Transforming current programming approaches to be better aligned with the current state of knowledge on DRG;
  • Developing an engagement strategy at the country level that goes beyond programme or project time frames.
  • Advancing DRG at the local level.
The report notes that some of the proposed measures have already been applied in some of the reviewed country programmes, whilst others point to gaps not yet addressed in UNDP policy and programme support.
