Disaster Risk Reduction Architecture, Key practices for DRR Implementers

FAO-COOPI-OCHA-UNHABITAT/SAIO/2014. This resource tool is the summary of a larger study documenting adaptive architecture, Taking Stock of Disaster Risk Reduction Architecture in Southern Africa: lessons learned from 10 years of adaptive architecture for practitioners, decision-makers and field workers in disaster-prone countries of southern Africa and south-west Indian Ocean. It offers practical examples of adaptive construction practices for several hazards, as well as specific lessons learned for both practitioners and decision-makers willing to understand what works and what does not, and what is worth reproducing. This brief is part of the series, A Field Guide for Disaster Risk Reduction in Southern Africa: Key Practices for DRR Implementers, coordinated by the FAO Sub regional Office for Disaster Risk Reduction/Management for Southern Africa. This series has been produced with contributions from COOPI, FAO, OCHA and UN-Habitat. The study and its technical annexes are available at www.seadrr.org or on request from UN-Habitat Mozambique, Malawi and Madagascar. It has been produced under the project “Regional Multi Regional DRR Assistance Programme for Southern Africa: Information Management and Health” ECHO/-SF/EDF/2012/01004
