Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This study documents a methodological framework for bridging the gap between the science of natural hazard risk and the operational requirements of planners and policy analysts who are responsible for managing natural hazard risk at multiple levels of government in Canada. The framework includes methods for evidence-based decision-making that provide planners and emergency managers with a capability to incorporate the best available science on natural hazard risk in evaluating the efficacy of mitigation and/or adaptation strategies that have a potential to reduce future losses and increase disaster resilience. Although focused on disaster risk reduction, the framework may also have application in the field of climate change adaptation planning.
