The role of accountability within disaster risk governance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

During the decade that followed the adoption of the Hyogo Framework for Action in 2005, calls for greater public, private and civic accountability to reduce risk and vulnerability became increasingly vocal. It also provded guidance to the focal point on Disaster Risk Reduction at the central government level on how to improve leadership in risk governance,
transparency, sharing of risk information, stakeholder participation and public awareness and encouraging and action on stakeholder feedback.
Accountability in disaster risk reduction is intended to enable scrutiny and understanding of actions taken at different levels, and of those responsible for such actions. Article 19(e) of the Sendai Framework articulates the principle that disaster risk reduction depends on coordination mechanisms within and across sectors, full engagement and clear responsibilities of all State institutions and stakeholders, to ensure mutual accountability.
In contributing to this agenda, a workshop on “Ensuring Accountability in Disaster Risk Management and Reconstruction” was organised as a part of a global, regional and national partnership. This workshop and the subsequent policy dialogue had the participation of disaster risk management experts and state and non-state stakeholders to deliberate
on and develop a possible framework for social accountability to be considered for inclusion in a national disaster management plan.
