Summary – Effective law and regulation for disaster risk reduction: a multi-country report

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have collaborated on a multi-country
report to assess legal frameworks for DRR in 31 countries. The purpose of this report is to support legislators, public administrators, and DRR and development practitioners and advocates to prepare and implement effective legal frameworks for disaster risk management (DRM) that are adapted to their own country’s needs, drawing on examples and experience from other countries.
 
Its four objectives are to:
 
(i) present examples of DRR legal provisions from different country contexts and legal systems as a resource for DRM practitioners and legislators;
 
(ii) identify factors that have supported or hindered the implementation of DRR as a priority within DRM laws and selected sectoral laws;
 
(iii) make recommendations for legislators, practitioners and policy makers engaged in reviewing or drafting DRM laws and selected sectoral laws;
 
(iv) provide an analytical framework against which different DRM laws and selected sectoral laws can be assessed at the country level in terms of effective support for DRR.
