IDB Publication on Vulnerability and Risk Reduction


American Development Bank’s publication “Planning and Financial Protection to Survive Disasters” distinguishes between risk management—which calls for prior planning and investments to reduce vulnerability—and emergency response, which involves after-the-fact expenditures. This technical paper deals with two important areas: identifying and reducing risk by integrating prevention and mitigation into development plans and financial protection of costly investments.
