Colombia’s strategic framework for disaster risk governance

This chapter assesses the ability of Colombia’s risk governance system, anchored in Law 1523/2010, to support policy outcomes for sustainable and inclusive development across the country. Law 1523/2012 is evaluated against its capacity to provide strategic guidance and to anchor disaster risk management in the national policy agenda. It also reviews the framework’s ability to devise clear roles and responsibilities and to convene all relevant actors to co-ordinate national disaster risk management policies and measures under the strategic leadership of a central lead institution. The chapter also assesses transparency and inclusiveness in the policy formulation and implementation process as key elements of good disaster risk governance.
