Effects of governance systems and development situations on progress in achieving sustainable disaster risk management change

This paper proposes a methodology for developing such indicators, key questions and means of verification that recognises the prevailing inequality of risk within societies, including the inequality in participating in the decision-making process related to disaster risk management (DRM), and the importance of effecting change in this regard as a key tool for reducing exposure, vulnerabilities and disaster losses.

The document shows that in order to develop targets and indicators capable of measuring the success in effecting DRM change, it is proposed that the indicators are developed to assess progress under different risk governance stages. In particular, indicators for participation, inclusiveness, accountability and effectiveness must be developed for each risk governance stage.

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