Understanding Disaster Risk for Advancing Resilient Development: Knowledge Note
Asian Development Bank | September 2018
This knowledge note highlights ten key considerations for enhancing the understanding of disaster risk among public investment planners. It is designed to aid their engagement in the disaster risk assessment process. If the sustainable development goals are to be achieved, it is necessary to integrate disaster risk consideration in the public investment planning processes. Government officials involved in public investment planning have a key role to play in defining the risk information-related needs and supporting the development of such information in close partnership with hydrometeorological and geological institutes and relevant national agencies that address disaster risk management and climate change adaptation.
