This framework is a first assessment step providing information on how root causes are linked to disaster risk and revealed disaster losses, thus assisting DRM agencies to identify and to address these factors at a very early stage of their intervention. In this regard the study contributes to the international discussion on how to refine and amend current assessment and reporting tools to analyze disaster root causes in order to implement the goals defined in the HFA. The study aims to propose a framework to assess underlying drivers and root causes of disaster risk. In this context, it provides additional information to stakeholders involved in Disaster Risk Management and Humanitarian Assistance to prioritize efforts and intervention options to address these issues.
