Additional Notes of "Managing Risk" Working Group
It’s not about relief and development boxes, but about assessing and managing “risk”
That risk is aggravating vulnerability and needs to be incorporated into our Theories of Change
Need to integrate risk factors into program analysis, design and implementation. For this to happen we need capacity for management of risks, scenario planning and on-going monitoring of scenarios
How to maintain the necessary capacity during “non-disaster” periods?
Frequency and complexity of disaster imply that we need to translate possible outcomes identified through scenario planning not only as emergency preparedness plans, but also flexible, robust programs
Ongoing monitoring of key risk indicators
Programs need to incorporate strategies for adaptations at community as well as institutional levels
Important to link technical/sectoral units into this discussion, including:
Basic services in emergencies
Global food economics
Sub regional water resource management
Climate change and urban governance
Signature program needs to incorporate risk analysis and management
Fund raising and investment
Identify opportunities linked to increased focus on some donors on risk (e.g. ECHO, Title II, OFDA, OCHA, EU, DFID).
Insurance analogy – we need to understand what is an appropriate level of investment for DRR “insurance” in a given context to reduce vulnerability and help move forward towards program objectives despite a disaster “shock”
Policy analysis and advocacy – integrate DRR into the aid efficiency debate (at national and global level).
