The Checklist on Law and Disaster Risk Reduction (an annotated outline, October 2015)
The Checklist on Law and Disaster Risk Reduction (the Checklist) provides a prioritized list of ten key questions
that lawmakers, implementing officials, and those supporting them need to consider in order to ensure that their laws provide the best support for DRR. It covers not only dedicated disaster risk management (DRM)4 laws but also other sectoral laws and regulations that are critical for building safety and resilience, as well as the environment, land and natural resource anagement.
The Handbook on Law and Disaster Risk Reduction has been developed to provide further detail and practical guidance
on how the Checklist can be used as a tool for strengthening laws and regulations and commitments made under the Sendai Framework.
