Inclusive disaster risk management: a framework and toolkit for DRM practionners

Number of pages: 107 p.

This framework and accompanying toolkit provide practical guidance on how to achieve inclusiveness in disaster risk management (DRM) practice. The framework and toolkit address the underlying vulnerabilities of people to disasters such as inequality and social exclusion, gathered from knowledge and practices in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The framework and toolkit have been created for project managers, project coordinators, technical and policy advisors in charge of designing, implementing and evaluating DRM initiatives at all levels and working on different components to use, test and adapt them. Both have been designed in simple language, so the resource should be easy to adapt for the use of field staff as a complement to existing manuals and operational resources on DRM.
