Safer Communities Through Disaster Risk Reduction (SC-DRR) in Development

The issue of climate change is set to increase the frequency of extreme weather events. Countries, therefore, are required to undertake adaptive measures to ameliorate the impact of such events; Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is an important element of such measures. This report, published by the United Nations Development Program and the Government of Indonesia, presents findings from the final evaluation of the Safer Communities through Disaster Risk Reduction (SC-DRR) project. The project aimed to improve safety in Indonesia by considering the ways in which DRR can be integrated into the countries standard development process. The report is based upon an extensive literature review and interviews with over 100 stakeholders and beneficiaries. It concludes with a series of recommendations for improving DRR integration in Indonesia.
