STEP 2: Establishing Special Entities for Coordination
Establishing special entities to coordinate data collection from governments at the national level to help smooth cooperation and streamline data collection and analysis:
- Harmonization of various sets of data requires in-depth cooperation between different governmental agencies at the national and local levels. The ministry of agriculture should collaborate with the ministry of finance (MoF) to lead the process and seek support from other relevant ministries (e.g. trade and industry, infrastructure, energy, rural development, emergency agencies).
- Data collection should include assistance from civil society organizations that contribute not only to DRR but also to disaster response and recovery.
- Research and academic institutions, and private actors from industries such as insurance, should be included to contribute to the data collection.
Guiding Questions and Tools
