Summary: Mapping the Baseline – To What Extent Are Displacement and Other Forms of Human Mobility Integrated in National and Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Strategies?
This study by Michelle Yonetani (2018) was commissioned by the Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD), in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), in support of the implementation of the Sendai Framework and the Nansen Initiative Protection Agenda. This is a summary of the main findings.
This global study and dataset maps and analyses national and regional DRR strategy documents to provide:
• a unique global baseline against which the inclusion of displacement and human mobility in national and regional strategies may be understood and monitored.
• a resource to inform the revision and development of DRR strategies, targets and indicators to address displacement. This complements Words in Action guidance on “Disaster displacement: How to reduce risk, address impacts and strengthen resilience.”
• openly accessible data and findings to inform further research and engagement on DRR and displacement.
The study directly supports Sendai Framework Target E that aims to substantially increase the number, quality and implementation of national and local DRR strategies by 2020, as well as Target B (on affected populations).
