This publication provides a series of 14 guidance notes for use by development organizations in adapting programming, project appraisal and evaluation tools to mainstream disaster risk reduction into development work in hazard-prone countries. The guidelines are deliberately intended as short, practical briefs supplementing existing, more general, guidelines on programming, appraisal and evaluation tools.
The series covers an introduction highlighting critical factors contributing to the successful mainstreaming of disaster risk reduction into development policy and practice; collecting and using information on natural hazards; poverty reduction strategies; country programming; project cycle management; logical and results based frameworks; environmental assessment; economic analysis; vulnerability and capacity analysis; sustainable livelihoods approaches; social impact assessment; construction design, building standards and site selection; evaluating disaster risk reduction initiatives; and budget support.
