Haigh, Richard, Amaratunga, Dilanthi and Hettige, Siri (2016) Ensuring Accountability in Disaster Risk Management and Reconstruction. In: International Workshop on Disasters and Accountability, 8th December 2015, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

During the decade that followed the adoption of the Hyogo Framework for Action in 2005, calls for greater public, private and civic accountability to reduce risk and vulnerability became increasingly vocal. Among them was a declaration issued by European ministers in 2014, the year before the finalization of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, in which they urge improved accountability, transparency and governance for disaster risk management. This also provides guidance to the focal point on Disaster Risk Reduction at the Central government level on how to improve leadership in risk governance, transparency, sharing of risk information, stakeholder participation and public awareness and encouraging and action on stakeholder feedback.
