The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) has published a new report entitled "Disaster Risk Management in Post-2015 Development Goals". The report analyzes different measures currently taken for disaster risk management (DRM) and the effects of disasters on various sectors in order to assess how DRM could be included in the post-2015 agenda.

This report is divided into eight chapters: (i) chapter one introduces the targets and indicators of DRM; (ii) chapter two addresses the economic impact of disasters; (iii) chapter three proposes indicators for monitoring disaster-related deaths; (iv) chapter four assesses options for disaster-related poverty targets; (v) chapter five discusses health in disaster events; (vi) chapter six discusses resilience and poverty reduction; (vii) chapter seven covers DRM education; (viii) and chapter eight contains a synthesis of the material, including three scenarios for the incorporation of DRM in the post-2015 goals.
