Scaling up disaster risk reduction in humanitarian action 2.0
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction

Recommendations for the humanitarian programme cycle

The recommendations seek to support the operationalisation of humanitarian development-peace collaboration through scaling up Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). This is not meant to be a “how-to” guide nor a substitute for the extensive guidance and tools on effective delivery of DRR; nor is it a substitute for the existing tools supporting the implementation of the Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC). Instead, it outlines ways to make DRR more integral to humanitarian planning and programming at country and local levels, particularly in more challenging contexts. It is intended to help practitioners strengthen risk-informed programming in different phases while leaving them room to adapt to the country context.
