  • I have been appointed as a member of the Editorial Team (by the UNISDR) on their report entitled “State of DRR at the Local Level”, The purpose of this is to encourage more research and consolidate available knowledge on the patterns of local risk reduction actions including factors that enable successful disaster resilience at local level. The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) “Making Cities Resilient” Campaign and on behalf of all its partners launched this report. The report explored a number of issues including: Drivers of Local Level DRR and resilience – The enabling environment for local DRR and resilience, and can include issues such as leadership, financing, mandate, capacity, local risk patterns or social demand from citizens; Elements of local disaster resilience and the links to a national DRR and resilience framework in particular links to local development issues; Effective local level DRR actions related to priority for action 4 under the HFA; and DRR governance including issues such as decentralization. 2014
