DG ECHO Thematic Policy Document: Increasing Resilience by Reducing Disaster Risk in Humanitarian Action


This document presents DG ECHO’s current policy (2013), priorities, approach, and practices on DRR. It does not seek to provide detailed technical guidance on DRR; such guidance can be found in the growing body of literature available on the subject. The document is divided into three sections, with additional resources and tools provided in an Annex. The first section presents the policy framework guiding DG ECHO’s support for DRR in all its interventions. The second section explains how DG ECHO programs its support for DRR, following the main elements of the program cycle: assessment, analysis, design, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and learning. The third section provides operational considerations for those most directly involved in DG ECHO funding for the implementation of DRR.
