    Is disaster risk reduction spending driven by the occurrence of natural disasters? Evidence from Peru

    Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo / Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), 2014
    This paper studies the allocation of total disaster risk reduction public spending among regions in Peru. The main objective of this work is to identify the main determinants of the distribution of these resources, and for this purpose an index of historical physical impacts of natural disasters, social vulnerability, and institutional capacity was created.
