This report argues that the practice of disaster risk management (DRM) is a defining characteristic of resilient societies, and should therefore be integrated – or ‘mainstreamed’ – into all aspects of development. It (i) analyses the alarming trend of disasters and development; (ii) presents disaster risk management in action through four pillars (risk identification, risk reduction, preparedness, financial protection and resilient reconstruction); (iii) features the need for national policies and planning; (iv) reviews international development cooperation, including financing and policies, and highlighting the rare convergence of renewal calendars for international policy frameworks such as the Hyogo Framework for Action; (v) presents the World Bank commitment to disaster risk management; and (vi) introduces the way forward, including priorities and opportunities for the World Bank.
