Disaster Reduction Goal

DRR activities
Policies and Programmes in DRR

ADB’s work in disaster risk management is guided by its Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy (DEAP, 2004), which establishes a series of objectives focusing on:
• strengthening support for reducing disaster risk in developing member countries;
•providing rehabilitation and reconstruction assistance following disasters; and
•leveraging ADB’s activities by developing partnerships.

The Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy is being implemented through an integrated disaster risk management (IDRM) approach that bring together the elements of disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA), and disaster risk financing (DRF) within an overarching context of resilience.

The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
