Integrating Disaster Risk Management into the Development Process promotes the adoption of a DRM approach to development decision making in order to both protect public investments from
the impacts of natural hazards as well as prevent them from exacerbating the existing risk profile of communities and assets.
This handbook specifically addresses those DRM practitioners who sit within the National Disaster Management Agency; or a sector agency or local government authority and have the
designated responsibility for DRM.
