Effective law and regulation for disaster risk reduction: a multi-country report (Summary)

Effective law and regulation for disaster risk reduction: a multi-country report (Summary)

Purpose:

This report aims to support legislators, public administrators, disaster risk reduction (DRR) and development practitioners and advocates to prepare and implement effective disaster risk management (DRM) legal frameworks for their country’s needs, drawing on examples and experience from other countries. For this purpose, the report has looked at aspects of different countries’ legislation according to how it addresses relevant themes in the Hyogo Framework for Action, as well as issues identified by state parties and the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in a 2011 International Conference resolution.

Overview:

The report considers both legislative provisions and stakeholder views on implementation with the objectives to:

  • present examples of DRR legal provisions from different country contexts and legal systems as a resource for DRM practitioners and legislators;
  • identify factors that have supported or hindered the implementation of DRR as a priority within DRM laws and selected sectoral laws;
  • make recommendations for legislators, practitioners, and policy makers engaged in reviewing or drafting DRM laws and selected sectoral laws;
  • provide an analytical framework against which DRM laws and selected sectoral laws can be assessed at the country level in terms of effective support for DRR.

Vietnam: Country Case Study Report. How Law and Regulation Support Disaster Risk Reduction

Vietnam: Country Case Study Report. How Law and Regulation Support Disaster Risk Reduction

Purpose

This case study explores the extent to which legal frameworks in Vietnam support national and local disaster risk reduction (DRR) efforts against natural hazards. It covers a wide range of law and regulatory issues including the integration of DRR into disaster management laws, institutional arrangements, liability, early warning systems, infrastructure, building codes, land use planning, environmental management/climate change adaptation, awareness-raising and education.

Overview

  • Law and regulation is crucial to the current successes in DRR in Vietnam. Although there remain some gaps in the legal framework and its implementation, the new disaster risk management (DRM) law seems likely to address many of these gaps.
  • Many effective DRR mechanisms in Vietnam are supported by legal frameworks which detail the institutional framework, implementation methods, allocation of financial resources, and clearly defined roles and responsibilities. Responsibilities are now more clearly allocated and defined under the new DRM law, but the well-established implementation mechanisms through responsible ministries and People’s Committees (PCs) remain in place under the new DRM Law. These mechanisms assist in integrating DRR principles into the legal and policy environment in Vietnam which, in turn, contributes to sustainable development and community resilience in the face of natural hazards.
