Disaster risk reduction requires a long-term approach and is relevant throughout the whole aid and development cycle. Sometimes targeted projects are required to reduce specific risks (e.g. river bank reinforcement to prevent flooding). However, mainstreaming of a DRR perspective is also required in poverty reduction, climate change adaptation and other development initiatives, in order to ensure best prospects of sustainability in the face of possible shocks and hazards.
