The expansion of accountability framework and the contribution of supreme audit institutions

This paper underscores the need for a new accountability framework for disaster reduction and draws attention to the role of supreme audit institutions (SAIs). This publication assesses the sufficiency of the existing accountability framework for disaster risk reduction under the light of literature and the experiences of SAIs.

The author calls for new disaster policies focusing on:

  • stronger planning and coordination capacity;
  • new governance structure and accountability framework providing participation of all parties; and
  • making information available and reported in a user-friendly and citizen-oriented manner.

This is an input paper for the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
