Understanding existing methodologies for allocating and tracking DRR resources in India

This study explains trends in public investments for disaster risk reduction (DRR) at national, provincial, and local levels in India in order to identify potential weaknesses in the current system of DRR budget allocation. Divided into eleven sections, this paper addresses important thematic issues in disaster risk reduction, such as gender budgeting, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and climate change adaptation.

By analyzing long term budget plans, the Financial Commissions awards system, and embedded schemes for disaster risk reduction, the study will help policy makers to mainstream DRR across India.
