Disaster Risk Management for Communities
This policy is written for Action Against Hunger staff, and aims to:
Define the issues of disaster risk and the different approaches to manage risk – it is important to use a coherent way of communicating DRM to others, given the lack of global coherence in terminology and concepts (Section 2),
Outline the current and likely future dynamics of disaster risk – it is equally important to understand why we do DRM and what we do for DRM. (Section 3),
Present the commitment of ACF for DRM in communities (Section 4) and how to make this practice sustainable within ACF via an institutional strategy (Section 5).
