Local reports of progress on implementing the Hyogo Framework for Action, with strategic recommendations for more effective implementation.
Views from the Frontline is now the largest independent global review of disaster risk conducted entirely at the local level.
In 2011, our second Views from the Frontline review was undertaken. The focus this time was on local risk governance. Information management, communication, consultation, coordination, decision-making and allocation of resources by local governments are the building blocks of local risk governance. We aimed to find out what’s working and what isn’t. The scale of the review was increased to include 20,000 people from 69 countries, plus additional 36,000 responses gathered by mobile phone texts.
This report provides an insight into our 2011 data, findings and policy recommendations.
