It reviews existing documents, including country-level reports and HFA National Reports, to develop an understanding of current national economic environments, legislation, awareness, capacity and institutional mechanisms related to disaster risk reduction and disaster management. Various project documents prepared at country, regional and global level were also reviewed, as were documents prepared by United Nations agencies, and national and international organizations working in the area.
