Hazard-Specific Disaster Risk Reduction Implementation Guide


The following hazard-specific disaster risk reduction (DRR) sheets are intended to guide analysis of which USAID/OFDA sectors and sub-sectors may be most relevant to reducing risk related to an identified hazard in the program location. As set out in USAID/OFDA’s DRR conceptual framework and strategy, the broad context of the area exposed to a given hazard, and the capacities that exist within that area, will also guide the development of appropriate DRR programs. By tying its DRR work to these hazards, USAID/OFDA is working well within its mandate to save lives, alleviate suffering, and reduce the economic impact of disasters.
