Abstract: This document briefs about the DPRK Red Cross disaster management (DM) programme, its objective, process and lessons learned.This programme was set up to reduce the risk of natural disasters and to help communities protect themselves and overcome the effects of disasters. Its main objective is to raise awareness of disaster risks and how to prepare for disasters at the community level, but it also combines physical (structural) mitigation measures, such as building river embankments, with softer (non-structural) measures, such as early warning, contingency planning, and risk mapping.
