Integrating disaster risk reduction into the CCA and UNDAF - A guide for UN Country Teams (UNDG - 2011)

Integrating disaster risk reduction into the CCA and UNDAF - A guide for UN Country Teams (UNDG - 2011)

Published by HayZara Madagascar
In 2009 the UNDG revised its Guidelines for UN Country Teams on Preparing a CCA and UNDAF (hereafter referred to as CCA/UNDAF Guidelines). The CCA/UNDAF Guidelines highlight the importance of DRR as a cross-cutting theme. The present guidance note is for UNCTs engaged in the CCA/UNDAF process in countries where disaster risk is considered a significant challenge to national development and poverty reduction. Its purpose is to provide step by step advice, including links to resources, on how to integrate DRR into the process of CCA/UNDAF preparation, formulation, and monitoring and evaluation. The guidance note complements, and should be read in conjunction with, the CCA/UNDAF Guidelines. It may also be of use to the wider development community when undertaking comprehensive development assessment, planning, programme management, and monitoring and evaluation.

This note provides substantive guidance and examples of how to integrate DRR into the CCA/UNDAF process. It recognises that there is no one blue-print for successful integration of DRR into development. Each UNCT needs to tailor its programmes to the specific needs of the country involved, and the priorities and capacities of the national government and its population.

The document focuses on disasters caused by vulnerability to natural hazards rather than those related to conflict or civil unrest. Because of the close relationship between climate change and disaster risk and the fact that DRR is an essential element of climate change adaptation, the guidance note will also be helpful to UNCTs wishing to address climate change impacts in their analysis and future plans. It will also be useful for UNCTs dealing with related risks, like food insecurity and technological risk.
