The Handbook on Law and Disaster Risk Reduction
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have jointly developed the Checklist on Law and Disaster Risk Reduction (the Checklist), and this accompanying Handbook. These tools are aimed at providing practical guidance to lawmakers, officials, and practitioners on how to review and improve laws and regulations to ensure DRR is prioritized in all sectors and at all levels with clear mandates and accountability frameworks. Both the Checklist and Handbook are the result of more than three years of rigorous research on best practices and lessons learned in developing and implementing legislation for DRR globally.
