This document outlines the policies, priorities, approaches, and practice of DG ECHO (Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations) regarding Disaster Risk Reduction. It serves as a guide for DG ECHO staff, EC services, implementing partners, and other stakeholders interested in understanding the focus and scope of DG ECHO's support in the realm of DRR. The document covers a broad range of disaster contexts, including those in conflict. Divided into three sections, it discusses the policy framework, program support for DRR throughout the program cycle, and operational considerations for those directly involved in DG ECHO-funded DRR implementation. The goal is not to provide detailed technical guidance but to offer a comprehensive overview of DG ECHO's stance and actions related to DRR.
