A Global Review: UNDP Support to Institutional and Legislative Systems for Disaster Risk Management

This analysis of UNDP support to institutional and legislative systems for disaster risk management constitutes a tool for improving governance and institutional frameworks for disaster risk management in support of the implementation of the Hyogo Framework and the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR). It will inform Governments and ISDR system partners in particular with regard to their support to develop policies and legislation for sustainable disaster risk reduction and to set up and strengthen multi sectoral and multi stakeholder National platforms for disaster risk reduction. As a critical contribution, this review, a product of global analysis carried out in the field research, offers guidance for the formulation of viable and positive implementation strategies, which will result in concrete actions where national governments are committed to their initiation.
