This paper is a pioneering work as a new definition of disaster risk governance including a new framework “Institutional Vulnerability Assessment” will be introduced. It is supported by empirical evidence from global scale assessment using quantitative measurement. The report views good governance as commitment to sharing decision making power between the stakeholders in disaster risk reduction, The government is a critical actor in reducing risk an development.rom the local to international level. It calls for a “political will” to accept power-sharing as it sees the state as a facilitator in development.
