Environmental guidance note for disaster risk reduction : healthy ecosystems for human security and climate change adaptation (Japanese version)

Authors: Ash, Neville, Murti, Radhika, Sudmeier-Rieux, Karen,

This publication was developed to provide guidance on the benefits of and ways to integrate environmental concerns into disaster risk reduction strategies (DRR) at the local and national levels. As recognised and outlined within the Hyogo Framework for Action priority 4, healthy ecosystems and environmental management are considered key actions in DRR. Although the field of disaster risk management has evolved to recognize the need for addressing sustainable development issues for reducing risk, the environmental dimension has not to date received adequate attention and practical guidance.
