Since the late 1990s, there has been increasing recognition of this need to mainstream disaster risk reduction into development. A number of development organisations have begun efforts to mainstream disaster risk reduction into their work, undertaking various related institutional, policy and procedural changes and adjusting operational practice. This publication supports this process, providing a series of 14 guidance notes for use by development organisations in adapting programming, project appraisal and evaluation tools to mainstream disaster risk reduction into development work in hazard-prone countries. The guidelines are deliberately intended as short, practical briefs supplementing existing, more general, guidelines on programming, appraisal and evaluation tools.
