Abstract

This book of abstracts incorporates the key note synopsis and all presented abstracts at the international workshop on Ensuring Accountability in Disaster Risk Management and reconstruction held in Colombo, Sri Lanka on the 8th December 2015 with the participation of disaster risk management experts and state and non-state stakeholders to deliberate on and develop a possible framework for social accountability to be considered for inclusion in a national disaster management plan. Our aim was to incorporate social accountability into disaster management to improve significantly the outcomes of external interventions leading to an improvement of life chances and quality of life of potential and actual victims of disasters.
