International Disaster Response Law (IDRL) in Italy: a study on strengthening legal preparedness for international disaster response
This report examines Italy's legal preparedness for managing incoming international disaster assistance in light of the Guidelines for the Domestic Facilitation and Regulation of International Disaster Relief and Initial Recovery Assistance (IDRL) Guidelines.
It seeks to identify the main obstacles that existing rules create for international cooperation in the event of disasters in Italy. It does so by looking at the IDRL Guidelines, adopted by state parties to the Geneva Conventions at the 30th International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, and at the EU Host Nation Support Guidelines (HNSG), a nonbinding document prepared by European Commission staff with the support of the Member States, which identifies key actions that assisted States should take in dealing with emergency planning, emergency management and coordination, logistics, transport, and legal and financial issues. The analysis seeks also to point out solutions (mostly legislative ones) that may contribute to enhancing international cooperation in response to disasters occurring in Italy.
